TALH student

The Texas Academy of Leadership in the Humanities (TALH) is a highly selective, early college entrance program for gifted and talented students eager for an enriched intellectual program enhanced by the disciplines of the humanities.

Created in 1993, the Academy is one of only two residential programs for gifted and talented high school-aged students recognized by the Texas State Legislature.

Academy students are expected to cultivate their leadership abilities by investing a portion of their out-of-class/study time in volunteer organizations, community service, and in activities and programs sponsored by the Academy. The ultimate aim of the program is simple: to cultivate the intellectual and ethical virtues of our state and nation's future leaders.

Our students have been accepted to the nation’s finest colleges and universities including Ivy League schools like Princeton, Harvard and Yale; the South’s best like Duke, Washington and Lee, Vanderbilt, and Tulane; powerhouses like the Universities of Chicago, New York, Stanford, and Southern California.
