Texas Academy of Mathematics and Science: 25 Years of Early College STEM Opportunities
Sayler, Michael F.
Roeper Review, v37 n1 p29-38 2015
The University of North Texas's Texas Academy of Mathematics and Science began admitting students to its 2-year early college entrance science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) program in the fall of 1988. This program provided accelerated entry for top students in Texas in the areas of mathematics and science. Approximately 200 students per year entered the program. This model for an early college entrance program was successful, with over 4,000 students participating and many going on to pursue STEM graduate programs and degrees. Completers matriculated to top research universities across the country.
