Tuition & Affordability

Tuition & Affordability

There is no better gift than a TJ education. The investment you make now in your child/grandchild’s education can pave the way to merit-based scholarships from colleges and universities. For example, TJ’s last five graduating classes each earned an average of 4.25 million in merit-based scholarship offers, which is an average of more than $208,000 per graduate.

To ensure TJ’s tuition is within reach for all families, TJ offers need-based financial assistance and scholarships to more than 55 percent of families with children enrolled at the school.

Quote

“We would not have been able to send our son to a private liberal arts college. He was able to do it all through the scholarships he received because of the excellent education that he obtained while he was here at Thomas Jefferson. That’s the focus of the teachers and the school administration, and our investment came back multifold.”
