Each year Fort Worth Academy graduates apply and matriculate to the most prestigious and selective high schools in the region. Fort Worth Academy is committed to providing comprehensive support, guidance, and advocacy for each child and family as they navigate the high school search process.
Fort Worth Academy is an incredibly diverse community, preparing students who demonstrate a myriad of passions, strengths, and interests. Our placement process honors this diversity and focuses on finding the right high school for each individual student.
Beginning in fall of 8th grade, the Director of Admission, along with the Head of School and the 8th grade teachers meets with all 8th grade families to strategize the school search process, provide updated school information and admissions trends, and counsel families through the application process.
The Admission and Registrar Offices facilitate the processing of all transcripts and recommendations and ensure timely receipt of all required credentials.
As mature, thoughtful leaders, 8th grade students are expected to play a meaningful and substantive role in their placement process.
