Visiting TAMS

Preview Day

Welcome to the Texas Academy of Mathematics & Science Preview Day. We are excited you will be joining us on this journey exploring the important details of TAMS and what opportunities are available to students.


In-Person Preview Events

Preview Events are for parents, educators, and students in grades 7–11 who would like to explore the program in person by visiting staff and students.

Please note that financial aid and scholarships will not be discussed at these large scale events. We will be hosting more informal and smaller Zoom sessions for those interested and you will have the benefit of speaking directly with Ms. Cortney Watson who is our Director for Finance and Operations with the department.

Spend a Day

We are making changes this year and offering even more and better tailored Spend a Day events! Please be sure to read through all the information below to get signed up successfully for the program that we have pulled together specific to your needs.

Come spend a day with a student on campus learning what it is like to be a part of this program. Spend a Day is offered on a first come, first served basis, and is one of the most sought after experiences in which a student can participate. Each Spend a Day is scheduled near an In-Person Preview Day. For that purpose, we are tailoring the Spend a Days for students based on track and location of where the family/student lives. These events are for students to come on campus during the day without a parent and there are two forms to be filled out for each registration. Please be sure to fill these out and get them uploaded as soon as possible to confirm your space with us!

Spend a Day options will be available for the following:

  • Tuesday of the week of In-Person Preview Days for all participants that are local OR are interested in Traditional Science, Computer Science, Engineering, Visual Arts and Design, or Music as a track. 
  • Friday of the week of In-Person Preview Days for all participants that are travelling from far away OR are interested in Media Arts as a track. (Note: this day of the week is reserved ONLY for students who are travelling from far away or have an interest in Media Arts. If you are not one of these two things, you wil be removed from the Friday event and placed at the back of the line for the Tuesday event of the same week.)
