Northeast Tarrant County is fortunate to be home to numerous, quality educational institutions. The area is served by Birdville Independent and Keller Independent School Districts, two school districts dedicated to student education and renowned for innovative approaches to learning. This innovation is exemplified by the Birdville Education Center for Technology and Learning (BCTAL), a shining example of area cities, businesses and the school district working together to help students prepare to go directly into the workforce. Both Birdville and Keller Independent School Districts are rich in academic achievement, have outstanding faculty and boast state-of-the-art facilities that truly set them apart as exceptional public educational institutions.
Private school alternatives include Bethesda Christian School, Fort Worth Christian School, Harvest Christian Academy and St. John the Apostle Catholic School. These schools offer strong academics and often smaller classes, providing students with more individualized attention. Private school accreditation ensures that the institutions maintain the highest standards in all phases of school life. Many of the larger private schools offer athletic programs similar to public schools and provide academic and athletic competition at the state level. Area church-affiliated schools provide spiritual training and encouragement coupled with instruction as a part of their curriculum.
Higher-learning institutions are also plentiful and just minutes away. In the heart of Northeast Tarrant County, Tarrant County College offers associate degree and technical programs, continuing education, corporate workshops and customized training programs. Well-known area universities include TCU, SMU and UT-Arlington. Additional college campuses include the TCU Neeley School of Business, UT Arlington/Fort Worth Center, Dallas Baptist University-Hurst, Parker University and Everest College.
