Welcome to

Our College

Welcome to Hervey Bay Performing Arts College. 

Our College is for students who are passionate about dance and the arts or want to make a career in the performing arts industry. Our nurturing environment allows students to study full-time whilst completing their Primary & High school education onsite in Grades 6-12 through Cairns Distance Education.

Hear From Our Parents

We love our school - more of a family rather than a school. Our Brooke has thrived in this unique environment, her grades have improved, and her love and dedication for dance have exceeded my expectations - Thanks Jono, Gail and Jess,

-Amanda (Parent of Grade 11 Student)

So happy with how you and the school have been managing through the Covid shutdown... with two primary aged kiddos and also some work from home happening the fact Miranda is so 'easy' to manage with during her school day is all down to the excellent management and direction of HBPAC.

The fact the school provides dedicated tutoring, daily face to face group care sessions in the morning before the school day starts, year level, and individual one on one care sessions during the day online means every student has guidance, direction and assistance throughout the day. I can rest assured that my daughter is getting the best possible teaching and I am retaining my sanity. She is able to learn and complete her work with ease and little to no stress (on her and my part).

So from a very happy parent, THANKYOU!


-Janice  (Parent of Grade 9 Student)

The best decision we ever made was to send our daughter to the College for year 7.  Jonathon and Gail are so caring towards the students and the kids are offered incredible, endless opportunities. 


The whole enrolment process was super easy, with Jonathon handling all of the paperwork side of things with ease.  Through distance learning, our daughter is thriving and we have noticed a big change in her attitude already! 


We are definitely looking forward to sending our other daughter here in a Grade 6 this year and seeing what the future holds for both of them.


-Lisa (Parent of Grade 6 & 8 Student)

The smile, excitement, and enthusiasm our daughter displays everyday for school is proof and testimony to the warm, inviting, and supportive environment of the Hervey Bay Performing Arts College.

The opportunity for us to incorporate our daughter’s education with the Arts has transformed our lives from running around late into evenings between private lessons, to that of a seamless experience under one roof and all during school hours.

The classes offered at the Hervey Bay Performing Arts College are second to none. Not only are they comprehensive, but they offer quality industry-based education in the Arts. We personally do not know of anywhere offering such a varied and extensive program.

The support and dedication of the staff have nurtured my daughter in values of hard work, teamwork, resilience and forming true friendships.

We couldn’t ask for a better place to be educating her.

-Monica & Paul (Parent of Grade 7 Student)
