Summer Enrichment Opportunities

Summer Enrichment

The Advanced Academics Department offers a variety of summer enrichment opportunities for students of Northwest ISD.    Please check back in early Spring 2020 for dates & locations.

For opportunities outside of Northwest ISD, please visit Summer Enrichment Opportunities.

Students are invited to apply for a scholarship from TAGT to offset the cost of summer enrichment.  Scholarships are based on merit and can be used for summer enrichment programs focusing on  leadership, academics, STEM, and fine arts.   For guidance in applying, students and parents may want to refer to this slide deck.
