Open House

Discover the best in American education - at a school where families are valued.


Join us at the Open House on Tuesday 4 June at GEMS American Academy Qatar (GAAQ). This event provides a unique opportunity for you to witness first-hand the proof points, which are the reasons behind our outstanding student and parent satisfaction ratings, making us a great place to learn.

Our Principal will take you on a guided tour so you can gain a better sense of our award-winning school, see our diverse student population of nearly 80 nationalities and witness the balance of learning and fun.


10.00 – 10.20am

Our principals will review the top features and benefits of the American curriculum, discuss our elementary, middle school and high school academic offerings, overview our extra-curricular and after school activities and discuss how we focus intently on the holistic development of our students (academic, social, emotional, physical and cognitive learning).

10.20 – 10.50am

Led by our principals, enjoy an extensive tour of our 20,000 square meter campus where you will see learning happening, in real time, inside and outside of the classroom. Please use this time to ask questions and to get your questions answered by our knowledgeable school leaders.

10.50 – 11.00pm

Participate in our post-tour Q & A session with our Admissions team and Parent Relations Executive (PRE). Additionally, parents will have personalized time with our Admissions team to officially apply to our school and schedule an admissions assessment for your child.
