Current FBISD GT Students
The application window for the 2020 - 2021 school year will be from February 3, 2020 to March 6, 2020. 5th grade Fort Bend ISD students currently in the GT program may submit an application.
The February window allows for FBISD students being evaluated during the spring 2020 window to apply for the academy immediately AFTETR receiving eligibility notification for GT services in FBISD. Spring Testers are encouraged to wait until after they are eligible to apply.
Based on the student’s GT Identification Profile, priority admission is offered to any FBISD GT student who scores at or above 97th percentile (130 or above) on any subtest (verbal, quantitative, or non-verbal) of the CogAT or its equivalent. Test scores do not expire.
If the number of priority applicants exceed the number of seats available, a lottery will commence on March 27, 2020.
Eligible GT students whose test scores fall below the 97th percentile will be offered admission based on the number of seats available after priority admission. If the number of applicants in this group exceed the number of remaining seats from priority admission, a second lottery will commence.
Subjective criteria such as student essays and teacher recommendations are not part of the application process.
