Peter HoehnCollege Principal
Burpengary State Secondary College is located on
a large modern campus approximately 20 minutes
north of Brisbane, close to beautiful Moreton
Bay, Freshwater National Park and the brand new
University of the Sunshine Coast Petrie Campus.
We value strong community relationships and support
a culture of high expectations and excellent student
outcomes. The school’s vision, ‘Innovative Learning
in a Global Community’, is the philosophy behind a
comprehensive curriculum that enables you to choose
a pathway based on your talents and preferences,
in addition to demonstrated success and a strong
focus on Science, Technology and Engineering.
Unlike other larger schools in South East Queensland,
our ISP department offers a smaller unique
program. This allows us to provide each student
with individual curriculum support and dedicated
homestay guidance, care and wellbeing.
Homestay* enables EQI students to truly experience Australia's famous lifestyle.
By living with an Australian host family international students become part of the local community and have a fantastic opportunity to practise their English in a safe and caring home environment. International students often develop lasting friendships with their homestay families.
Standard Homestay fees have been set and these are listed on the EQI program fees page.

* Students enrolled in Primary School must live with a parent or close relative as defined by the Australian Immigration Regulations.
EQI holiday adventure programs are an exciting and safe way for international students to travel and sightsee during school holidays.
There's an adventure to suit every taste - from visiting city landmarks and riding camels on an unforgettable Australian outback adventure, to exploring ancient rainforests and swimming with turtles off Queensland's pristine white sand beaches.
All holiday adventures are fully guided and escorted by qualified Queensland Government teachers and staff to ensure student safety. These programs are open to international students enrolled in an EQI high school and additional fees apply. Find out more about our holiday adventure programs.
