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.
