Welcome to Qatar Academy Doha,

Imagine a community of learners with a mission to lead. Think of a learning environment at the heart of Education City, connected to a network of innovation labs, incubators for young entrepreneurs, university campuses and research centers. Now consider being a member of this learning community with the ability to make a difference and help make the world around you, a better place.
This is QAD, and you are welcome to learn with us.

I had the honor of joining Qatar Academy Doha as its Director, with its great team of educators, who follow a vision that took form twenty-five years ago under Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser’s leadership. A school guided by Qatar Foundation’s ambitious strategy for progressive education, in a country that is continuously pushing the boundaries of what is possible.

We are an IB continuum school with a strong academic program and a rich array of co-curriculum activities, led by a multicultural competent faculty. We offer learning experiences with a purpose to grow agentic individuals in a community grounded in the virtues and values that define the Qatari culture and identity.

At QAD, we are safe, respectful and responsible learners.

QAD is a school where we develop international mindedness by engaging in, and tackling, local and global issues. We leverage the unique ecosystem that is Qatar Foundation to provide a model of education that supports the growth of all our learners. We collaborate with other organizations to expose our students to meaningful opportunities and widen access to quality education.
So, if you are a student, a parent or an educator interested in an environment in which students make a difference, parents are engaged and supportive, and educators are passionate about learning… you are welcomed to join our community and play an impactful role in our open campus. You are also most welcomed to engage with us on social media and visit us in Education City.
