Texas Academy of Biomedical Sciences (TABS) is an Early College High School in downtown Fort Worth, Texas. The School is located within Tarrant County College, Trinity River Campus on the banks of the Trinity River in the heart of Fort Worth. Together with our educational partners, Tarrant County College and University of North Texas Health Science Center, we work to prepare students for advanced degrees and careers in Biomedical Sciences and Health Sciences. With a focus on Biology and Human Anatomy, students are equally prepared for the laboratory or serving patients in the hospital room. As a choice school, TABS students challenge themselves in order to achieve their own goals of becoming a biomedical researcher, doctor, nurse, or pharmacist to name a few. You can identify TABS students by their white lab coats with the school crest and their thorough knowledge of anatomy.
TABS students take pride in working closely with high school and college faculty as well as industry partners in order to build a culture of support and success. Positive relationships and hands-on learning experiences through labs and clinical rotations help make TABS great. In addition to a focused curriculum with pathways towards Biomedical Lab, Patient Care, Pharmacy, and Central Sterile Processing Technician certifications, students are afforded the opportunity to earn college credits with over 95% of students earning either an Associate of Art or Associate of Science degree in recent graduating classes. This head start propels students toward advanced degrees and reaching their professional goals.
