National Honor Society
Thomas Jefferson is a member in good standing in the National Honor Society.  Members are selected by a faculty council on the basis of high standards in scholarship, service, leadership, and character. Visit the NHS page for more information.

Destination Imagination
Imagine, research, design, create and present your own machines, mini-buildings, stories, skits, props, and/or costumes with a team of your friends.  Put it all together in your own Challenge Solution. This is Destination Imagination. Destination Imagination is an international organization with local competitions. To learn more -  www.idodi.org. Commitment: Fridays after school in November and December, Spring Semester M-W-F DI elective (this is at the same time as the Middle School play elective), and some Saturday work days. 

Literary Magazine 
Students create a 28-page full-color literary and arts magazine in the spring called Magna Artifex, that showcases creative student work including poetry and creative writing in English, French and Latin and Spanish, and artwork such as photography, sculpture, pottery, paintings, and drawings.

Yearbook
Students in grades 9-12 work diligently throughout the year to produce the Cavalcade, Thomas Jefferson’s annual yearbook.  Using the latest technology available, including Adobe Photoshop, InDesign and other current applications, the students complete all phases of the publication process: planning, photo shoots, digital photo editing, composition, copy editing and proofreading.  Our staff of Upper School students also assists in selling the books, contacting and working with potential advertisers and coordinating efforts with the publishing company.  Beginning in 2007, the book was 100 percent digitally produced and in full color.
