Welcome to the Upper Coomera State College community, a co-educational prep to year 12 College located in the Northern Gold Coast, one of the fastest growing regions of Australia. The college attracts 2200 students who all enjoy and value learning, strive to achieve their best and are active members of a safe, supportive and positive school community.

Our college is situated only 15 minutes from either the beach or the mountains, and only two minutes away from our local theme parks - Movie World, Dream World, Whitewater World and Wet and Wild. Our transport system consists of local buses and train stations. Commuting to our state capital, Brisbane, also takes less than 50 minutes. We are also very close to Gold Coast shopping hubs Westfield Helensvale, Harbour Town and Australia Fair. All easily accessible via local bus routes.

The college motto, 'Learning Pathways to the Future' reflects our commitment to working in partnership with families to ensure every child has a quality education which prepares them for a positive future. We pride ourselves as a leader in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education, sporting excellence and the arts, providing innovative, academically challenging, engaging and inspiring learning pathways for high achieving students. Upon completion at Upper Coomera State College students will be equipped with the confidence and lifelong skills to succeed in their chosen pathways.

We do so within a caring, nurturing learning environment that values diversity, promotes international mindedness and is respectful and accepting of others. UCSC is committed to addressing the learning and developmental needs of each and every one of our students, and provide individualised curriculum from prep right through to year 12, offering a range of curricular and extra-curricular programs to cater for the needs of each student.

Choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will ever make and we strongly believe Upper Coomera State College has the right blend of academic, sporting and cultural experiences for your child. We invite you to visit us and observe firsthand our wonderful school community.
