HOUSTON – Sept. 29, 2016 – Carl Wunsche Sr. High School, a career academy in Spring ISD, will accept online applications for the 2017-18 school year Oct. 1-31. The school administration is holding information meetings for eighth- and ninth-grade students who are interested in attending the school next year.
Since opening in 2006, Wunsche has been recognized as a leader in providing Spring ISD students with access to Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs, real-world experience, rigorous coursework, and mentor and internship opportunities.
The academy integrates core academics with career pathway exploration in the areas of engineering, computer technology, oil and gas production, design and construction, legal studies, culinary arts, and the medical and veterinary sciences.
Students are able to earn college Advanced Placement credit, dual credit and articulated credit, therefore getting a head start on their post-secondary education. Over 1,000 certifications were earned by Wunsche students during the 2015-16 school year.
Application and Admission Process
The application process is now open for any current eighth- or ninth-grade Spring ISD student. There are no prerequisites or additional entrance criteria other than a student meeting grade-level promotion standards. Families will need to complete an application and select a first and second choice from the available career pathways. There will be a required interview component, and the district will use a lottery-based selection process for each pathway. The lottery will take place during the spring semester.
Parent Sessions Planned
To help answer questions and familiarize parents with the application process as well as the school’s programs, three evening meetings are scheduled at Carl Wunsche Sr. High School, 900 Wunsche Loop. These meetings are open to all interested eighth- and ninth-grade students and parents.
