Leadership and STEAM Academies

The leadership academies within MISD’s Power of Choice give elementary and intermediate schools students (grades K-6) the opportunity to have a leadership curriculum built into the instructional schedule.

The deadline to apply for a transfer to a Leadership or STEAM Academy is April 1. 

Admission into these academies (listed below) is based upon available space and require a transfer application through Student Services. Transportation will not be provided for these schools if they are outside your designated attendance zone.
