• The Collegiate Academy of Birdville is accepting applications from current eighth-grade students to be members of the Class of 2028!  

    Students at the Collegiate Academy of Birdville (CAB) have the opportunity to earn an associate degree from Tarrant County College while they earn their high school diploma at Haltom High School. Students can still choose to participate in band, athletics, theater, choir, or other extracurricular activities while enrolled in the program. This is an opportunity to earn a two-year degree at no additional expense to your family!


    If your student is interested in accepting the challenge of the Collegiate Academy of Birdville, please fill out the online application here - https://forms.gle/cRzZef9Eqz5N9bAp9. BISD students will enter their Student ID numbers (lunch codes) and contact information will be pulled from Focus. Applicants who are not BISD students will provide all the requested information.The email addresses provided in Focus or on the application will be our primary means of communication with applicants. Please monitor these accounts for updates on upcoming meetings that are required as part of the application process.
