Military-Connected Families

Barbers Hill Independent School District (BHISD) extends a heartfelt welcome to our military families. We recognize the unique challenges that come with serving our country, especially for students and families who experience frequent relocations and deployments. Our commitment is to provide steadfast support, ensuring a smooth transition and a supportive educational environment for our military-connected students.

To address the specific needs of our military families, BHISD has curated a range of resources and programs designed to facilitate academic success and emotional wellbeing. Whether it's through counseling services tailored for transitional challenges, academic support to catch up or get ahead, or clubs and activities that foster a sense of belonging, we are here to support our military students in every step of their educational journey.

This dedicated page serves as a hub of valuable information to assist our military families in navigating the educational landscape at BHISD. Here, you will find details on enrollment procedures, educational resources, support services, and community engagement opportunities. We encourage our military families to reach out with any questions or needs, as we are committed to making your experience at BHISD not only successful but also enriching and welcoming. Together, we stand in support of our military families, honoring their service by providing the best educational opportunities for their children.
