NISD CTE: Get Real.
At Northwest ISD CTE, we believe every student should get real: real academics, real skills, and a real high school experience unlike any other. By combining strong academics with robust career-minded education, we expand students' options and opportunities to make them truly future ready. Together with parents, business leaders, and the community, we challenge all students to aspire to their full potential, advance with rigorous academic and technical skills, and achieve a real-world competitive advantage.
Middle school students and families who want to learn more about NISD high school academy programs can attend Academy Nights beginning at 6 p.m.:
Oct. 17 at Byron Nelson HS

Academy Enrollment Requests
The Academy Enrollment Form will be available beginning Monday, October 17th, and will remain open through Friday, November 18th.
8th grade students* considering an Academy for high school will need to submit the form. Students may only submit an Enrollment Form for one Academy. If they submit more than one, only their last submission will be considered. Once student placement decisions have been made, the form will reopen for additional enrollments if space is available. Students will be notified by January 15th of the status of their Enrollment Request.
*Students request enrollment to the Cosmetology Academy during their Sophomore year of high school to attend during their Junior and Senior years.
