How to Apply

Application Process Period for 2018-2019 admissions will open September 22, 2017.  Due to the volume of applications received during Phase 1, we will NOT be accepting applications for Phase 2 or 3.  Thank you for your interest in Michael E. DeBakey High School for Health Professions. 

Applications can be submitted both online and on paper. You can apply to a total of five (5) Magnet Programs, including Vanguard.  Applications will be accepted starting September 22, 2017 and must be submitted no later than December 8, 2017 for guaranteed consideration in the first round of applicants. Applications received after December 8, 2017 will be processed only on a space-available basis.
DeBakey High School falls under the "Separate and Unique School" (SUS) guidelines, and, as such, we are required to only admit students who live within HISD boundaries. We regularly conduct investigations to ensure that our applicants, as well as our current students, are in compliance with the SUS residency guidelines.
