Academy Frequently Asked Questions
Who can request enrollment for an academy?
Incoming 9th grade students may request enrollment to any one of the district academies. Academies may admit 10th grade students who are new to NISD with facilitator approval or students who are already enrolled on the same campus as the academy they are requesting.
What if I want to attend an academy that is not offered at my home campus?
You will have the opportunity to transfer to the campus of the academy for which you were accepted to participate in an academy. This will become your home campus.
Will the district provide transportation if I want to transfer in order to participate in an academy?
Yes, bus transportation will be provided both to and from school at regular school hours. Transportation will not be provided for out of district transfer students.
