What is CCMR?
In Forney ISD we are committed to ensuring that our students graduate high school future-ready by providing post-secondary opportunities through College, Career, and Military readiness programs. College Career and Military Readiness (CCMR) is about preparing students for life after graduation. It is made up of curriculum, resources, programs and activities that help students have the tools they need to enter college or the workforce and begin a career. CCMR is integrated into the everyday culture of our district and is supported by state guidelines, partnerships with higher education organizations and businesses.
Students will reach CCMR status by one (1) of the following methods listed below:
Earn a score of 3 or higher on at least one AP examination
Meet TSI score via SAT, ACT, TSI-A, or complete College Prep Courses in both English AND Math
Complete dual credit courses (9 hours in any subject or 3 hours English OR Mathematics)

Apply for scholarships?
Most students depend on financial aid to help them pay for college. Each year apply for federal grants, work-study, and loans with the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form. Colleges use FAFSA data to determine federal aid eligibility. Many states and colleges use FAFSA data to award their own aid. Please complete your FAFSA form as soon as possible after the application opens.
Students that are classified as a Texas resident who cannot apply for federal financial aid because of citizenship status are able to complete the TASFA.
FAFSA completion is a graduation requirement. All seniors are required to complete the FAFSA, TASFA, or an opt-out form. If a senior is not completing the FAFSA or TASFA, he/she will need to complete the Financial Aid Opt-Out Form and submit the completed form to his/her school counselor to meet this graduation requirement.
The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) is a multiple choice test, administered by the United States Military Entrance Processing Command, used to determine qualification for enlistment in the United States Armed Forces. Test dates and links for sign up are in graphic below.
Please use THIS LINK to sign up for the October 17th ASVAB.
The Texas Success Initiative (TSI) is a state placement assessment designed to assist the college or university in determining if you are ready for college-level course work in the areas of reading, writing, and mathematics. Students whose college requires the TSI can get a jump start by taking it at North Forney before graduating high school. Please see below for the sign-up links.
The ACT and SAT are exams designed to measure academic readiness for college. Colleges and universities use SAT / ACT scores for admissions and merit-based scholarships. Please see testing dates below.
