In CFBISD, We’re launching many new signature programs that are STELLAR. And that’s exactly what we are calling them… STELLAR!
Stellar Signature Programs offer CFBISD students a vast array of individualized opportunities uniquely designed to fit student needs. Our Stellar Signature Programs provide a comprehensive list of Elementary, Middle and High School choices for our students.
Of course, we already have some awesome STELLAR programs in place… Like Dual Language and our innovative high school academies. But over the next several years, we will be launching new STELLAR programs at all of our campuses in CFBISD.
CFBISD is announcing TWO new STELLAR Signature Programs for the 2018-2019 School Year…

Your Students might want to be a dancer, a musician, an actor, or a singer – The Imagine Fine Arts Academy will make this happen. You will have many, many fine arts opportunities like theatre, art, music and dance. It is an exciting opportunity.
