The TJ Mission
Through a dedication to academic excellence, Thomas Jefferson Independent Day School stands accountable for educating students to make the most of their abilities.
The School educates students to acquire and refine essential academic knowledge and skills; cultivate an appreciation of the arts; develop lifelong fitness skills; assume responsibility for their behavior; seek out challenge, welcome criticism, test new capacities; practice self-discipline; and find joy in learning.
The school brings students together with teachers who exemplify intellectual curiosity, a dedication to truth, and the advantages of living the examined life.
Along with TJ’s Mission, our Honor Code is an integral component of the TJ culture and serves as a guide for all of our students, faculty, and the entire TJ community.
