Northwest ISD’s academies are now accepting applications for incoming 2018-19 freshmen – current district eighth-graders – who wish to take part in one of eight specialized academic routes.

The eight academies – focusing on aviation, biomedical sciences, business, college, cosmetology, creative media production, culinary arts and STEM – annually open the application process to eighth-graders and select students for admittance based on those submissions. Students can apply for any academy, regardless of the high school they are zoned to attend. Each student may only apply to one academy.

To apply for an academy, current eighth-grade students can visit www.nisdtx.org/cte and click on the “apply for academies here” link.

The application process will last until Jan. 15, with acceptance and denial letters scheduled for mailing on Feb. 10.
