All courses taken by Academy students will be college courses with matriculated University students and taught by University professors on campus. The Academy will foster students' knowledge of real-world international situations and problems and challenge students to apply critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Additionally, activities and clubs are available for students to join and interact with peers.

Medical Brigades

 

Students from the Texas Academy participated in the Global Medical Brigades that TAMIU, in alliance with Duke University, sponsored. The program provides for a skill-based 7-10 day brigade to Panama. The focus of this program is to achieve an aspect of a holistic model to strengthen the health and economic development of communities. Volunteers can join a brigade through a Global Brigades chapter on their university campus or workplace, or start their own Global Brigades chapter. Texas Academy students engage as full participants in this program and partake in fundraising efforts and travel alongside other University students.

For 2014-2015, our students were allowed to participate in UIL Invitational Meets. Our students had minimal preparation but were able to excel in competitions. During the year, the Texas Academy appointed a Special Program Aid to coordinate the competitions. Ms. Ruth Garza serves as the UIL Coordinator for our school. Efforts are underway to have our school granted permission to compete as a full-fledged UIL member.
