The Fort Bend ISD High School Academies are designed to offer specialized programs for academic achievement in a variety of career clusters. Academies are personalized, small learning communities that function within a larger high school with a mixture of career and academic classes offered to students. Students attending academies generally take more advanced courses in their areas of specialization and have the opportunity to earn college credit.
Important Update: Academy Bus Transportation
As announced in January, Fort Bend ISD has changed the way we will provide transportation services for Academy students. Beginning with the 2014-2015 school year, all GT Academy and High School Academy bus stops will be located at Fort Bend ISD elementary schools.
Please read the letter below, which was distributed to Academy students about Academy Bus Transportation for the 2014-2015 school year. All academy students must submit the Academy Transportation Request Form.
Academy Bus Transportation – Parent Communication - 5/14
Important Notice (12/06/13): Fort Bend ISD administration has conducted external audits reviewing several programs over the past two years. A recent audit conducted by TASBO (Texas Association of School Business Officials) recommended that Academy transportation be discontinued. The administration does not wish to eliminate transportation and is recommending a satellite bus stop system used by most districts that host magnet or Academy programs.
