Connally Independent School District, Home of the Cadets and UIL District 17-AAAA Academic Champions, is a preschool through 12th grade public school proudly serving the cities of Lacy Lakeview and Waco, as well as the communities of Elm Mott, Chalk Bluff and Gholson.
Connally prides itself on its caring family atmosphere and offers a challenging curriculum taught by highly qualified teachers. The Cadets enjoy exciting and competitive extracurricular activities such as athletics, marching band, dance team, cheerleading, honor society, student council, theatre and Air Force JROTC.
The district recently partnered with Texas State Technical College to offer area high school students the opportunity to pursue in-demand associate degrees with no cost to students. Through the Connally Early College High School, students can earn college credit towards degrees in some of the fastest-growing industries in Texas, and some may even graduate from TSTC before they graduate from high school.
