What is Apply Tarrant County?
The collective mission of Apply Tarrant County schools and Families Empowered is to ensure that all families in Tarrant County know they have school options — to us, that is empowerment. Apply Tarrant County is a webpage that simplifies the school application process for all families with one timeline and eventually in years to come, one application, resulting in more access than ever before for families to access their options – in both English and Spanish.
Who Is Families Empowered?
Families Empowered is a community-based, women- and minority-led non-profit parent service organization with the vision that, one day, all families will have access to schools that work, for them. With a leadership team and staff comprised of multiple first-generation college graduates, we deeply understand the importance of empowered parents, and the positive impact they can have on Texas communities. Each year we reach out to tens of thousands of families in Texas through in-person events, our bi-lingual call center, text, and social media, and provide them with free personalized support to help them navigate their many great K-12 school options. We work with thousands of families in Tarrant County each year to help them better understand the options that they have for their students.
When is the deadline to apply?
In order to be considered for the lottery, applications must be submitted by the deadline specified by each individual school. Applications submitted after this date may be placed on a waiting list; applications received after the application deadline will only be considered if the school has space available.
How do I apply?
Each school has an application on their own website. Please click onto their individual school links (located here) to find them. Each school covers their own application, lottery and admission process. If you have questions regarding a specific application please contact the school directly.
