Parents and guardians of current Northwest ISD eighth-graders are invited to the district’s Academy Backstage Pass event at each high school, which will take place the first two weeks of November.

Each of the district’s eight academies will highlight its offerings for parents and their students, including the courses offered and examples of what students are currently doing in their classes. All open houses will take place from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on each high school’s designated day. Though the event is targeted at eighth-graders and families, all district families are welcome to attend.

Northwest will kick off the series by hosting its open house event for the STEM Academy and Creative Media Production Academy on Monday, Nov. 4, followed by Eaton hosting open houses for the Business Management and Entrepreneurship Academy as well as the Aviation and Aeronautics Academy on Tuesday, Nov. 5.

The next week, Steele  will host open houses for the Collegiate Academy and Cosmetology Academy on Monday, Nov. 11; Byron Nelson will host the district’s final open houses for the Biomedical Sciences Academy as well as the Culinary Arts and Hospitality Academy on Tuesday, Nov. 12.

High school academies are open to incoming freshmen through an enrollment request process, which will open soon. Information about the enrollment request process will be provided to parents and guardians closer to this time.
