Learn how to apply to the Ann Richards School.
The Ann Richards School is a public school of choice serving grades 6-12. Female students within the Austin Independent School District (AISD) may apply. On average, the school receives more than 500 applications each year for approximately 150 spots. Our admissions process is competitive, but you do not have to be a straight-A student to apply.
Qualified applicants are placed in a random lottery. Admissions are based on an equal value consideration of the student’s letter of interest, teacher recommendations, recent report card with first semester grades, and attendance records.
A typical Ann Richards School student enjoys learning, and has high hopes for her future. Each year, 75% of our students come from schools where the majority of students are from economically disadvantaged families.
