All about admissions

  • Founded in 2011, the Texas Academy of Biomedical Sciences is a public Early College High School dedicated to educating students interested in biomedical-related careers and areas of study. At TABS, you’ll receive real-world and hands-on instruction in a blended setting that mixes high school and college courses. In every program and classroom, TABS encourages academic rigor and student development in language, culture, knowledge and responsibility.

    TABS admits about 100 ninth-graders and a small number of tenth-graders each year through a district lottery. There are no prerequisites for admission. The application window is Nov. 4 to Jan. 6. More information can be found using the links at left.

    Open House
