Shadowing Starts October 3rd!

If you’re a student who is interested in applying to TAG this year, then you should consider shadowing!

Our shadowing program allows prospective students to come out to TAG and shadow a current student through their school day. You’ll get to attend classes with them, go to lunch, and meet TAG students and teachers. After your shadowing visit, you’ll have a much clearer picture if TAG is where you want to attend for your high school career!

Shadowing will take place Monday through Thursday each week beginning on October 3rd and concluding December 15th.

You can set up a shadowing visit by calling our TAG office at 972-925-5970.
