Student Life




Social Activities

Texas Academy students enjoy access to the complete offerings of a major university — seminars, distinguished lecturers, forums in the fine arts and the humanities, research and lab facilities, professional societies and mentors. Students enjoy a full calendar of cultural and social events that include prom,  recitals, concerts, plays, cultural celebrations, Homecoming, research conferences and sporting events. Texas Academy students may participate fully in Lamar University campus activities (except Greek life), through campus-wide student organizations, university newspaper, band, dance, theatre, orientation leadership, academy-exclusive clubs and other student leadership opportunities.

The Academy’s focus on the humanities, STEAM and liberal arts is diverse and designed to develop positive self-image, self-confidence and beneficial social skills. Students are expected to dress and behave appropriately for events. Failure to comply may result in suspension of privileges.
