Fort Bend ISD High School Academies exist to provide specialized learning communities with concentrated and robust course pathways comprised of career and academic classes.
 
These specialized academies exist at the high school level to provide focused study and services, launching our students toward careers and college pathways in a number of highly skilled and competitive areas.  A middle school GT Academy and a GT Mentorship program are also offered for selected students.  All of these programs are offered through an application process, which includes a combination of academic performance data, test scores and interviews.  
 
Students apply for high school academies as 8th graders.  The application window for the 2017-2018 school year is November 1, 2016 - November 30, 2016.  Students must reside in the FBISD attendance zone during this application window in order to apply.  Students may not apply and will not be accepted outside of this process.  In order to properly staff our programs, create schedules, and train staff we must limit the application period for all specialized programs.  There are no exceptions to this policy. 
 
Students apply for the middle school GT Academy at 5th graders.  The application window for the 2017-2018 school year is January 1, 2017 - January 31, 2017.  Students must reside in the FBISD attendance zone in order to apply and also be identified as a Gifted and Talented student in FBISD.  Students must be referred for GT testing during the appropriate referral windows during the 2016-2017 school year if the child is not already identified as GT.
