Application process for the ACADEMY Class of 2021

Please join us for one of our Academy Information Nights on Monday September 26 or Thursday 29th beginning at  6 pm in TWCP Commons. The program lasts approximately three hours!  You may sign up for one of two testing days at Information Night. Testing days are Saturday October 8th or Saturday October 22nd.

Eligibility: Eighth-grade students who are currently living (Fall 2016) iin the Conroe Independent School District (CISD) and who are zoned to The Woodlands College Park High School, The Woodlands High School or Oak Ridge High  and who meet qualification and course criteria are eligible to apply for the Academy. (See separate statement of Application, Selection, and Transfer Policies.) The Academy application and selection process is competitive, involving grade and behavioral review, testing, teacher evaluations, and an interview. Invitations will be made on a space-available basis.

This will be your ONLY opportunity to apply. Late applicants for the Class of 2021 will be considered ONLY after move-ins and alternates.

Qualification Criteria: The Academy graduation requirements are rigorous. Students selected must be capable of honors/pre-AP and Advanced Placement  (AP) coursework. Grade and standardized test score qualification criteria are based on CISD guidelines for eligibility for these higher-level courses.

To qualify for consideration, a student must have a minimum grade  of 80 grade in each semester of English and social studies, and a grade of 85 in each semester of science and mathematics for the previous two years.  
A standardized test, the PSAT 8/9 will be given to all  CISD eighth grade students in early fall. Those scores will be considered in the application process. We will administer the ACT EPLORE and the QuantQ on test day. Minimum scores at the 80th percentile in each of the mathematics and reading tests will be required for further consideration. STAAR and End of Course (EOC) and other state/national testing results will also be reviewed (such as SAT test scores) – please provide these if you want them considered.

Course Requirements: All students must have completed Algebra I prior to entry into the Academy in 9th grade. Eighth-grade students who are doing very well in transition math/pre-algebra (above 93) and who would be willing to complete a special summer school Algebra I course are invited to apply.
