While any student can apply to TAG, regardless of his or her city of residence, students who live within Dallas ISD boundaries will receive priority in the application process. More details about out-of-district applications will be included in the application packet.

After all qualified in-district applicants (those who meet the minimum admissions requirements and have completed the application process) have been awarded seats, remaining seats will be awarded to out-of-district applicants. For reference, over the past four years, we’ve filled our spaces with in-district students and not had any extra seats available for out-of-district students.
