Plano ISD plans to host an informational webinar Oct. 28 that will provide a general overview of the district's four academy programs offered at the high school and senior high school levels.

Students that will be in ninth or 11th grades in the 2022-23 school year, along with their families, can find out more information about Academy High School, Health Sciences Academy, IB World College and PISD Industries Academy at the Collin College Technical Campus ahead of the application period for each of those programs.


Students begin classes for PISD Industries Academy in 11th grade, while the other three academies begin classes in ninth grade. Additional information about the district's Academy Programs of Plano and a link for the webinar are available here.

The application period for each of the academies begins Nov. 19. Applications for the three academies that begin in ninth grade must be submitted by Dec. 15. Applications for the PISD Industries Academy are due by Jan. 28.

Beginning in November, each academy will host follow-up information nights with more details and timelines about their respective programs.
