  • Falls Career High School is an alternative high school program in run in MFISD that allows high school-aged students to concurrently work and attend school. The current criteria for acceptance include the student's age, a minimum number of credits earned toward graduation, and being in circumstances where they are at-risk of or have dropped out of school, are unable to graduate with their cohort class, or a traditional high school cannot meet his/her needs.

Since its conception, the Falls Career program has been housed with the school district's offices in the Granite Building across the street from Marble Falls Elementary School.
