We prepare students for success in college by offering a rigorous curriculum in the best of the classical academic tradition.

The smart choice for a rigorous, well-balanced, and stimulating education  
We prepare students for success in college by offering a rigorous curriculum in the best of the classical academic tradition. Through a commitment to a liberal arts education, our caring and committed faculty develop engaged, ethical graduates who are confident in their abilities. At “TJ” you’ll find integrity, a respect for others, and a belief that everyone should be given the tools to succeed in college and beyond.  As a PK-12 school, Thomas Jefferson offers consistency and a sense of community that allow all of our students to grow in a safe and nurturing environment.  Foreign languages, fine arts, music, science, and technology are integrated at every level of the program.  Our college-preparatory program includes everything you expect -- and more: 18 Advanced Placement courses, college counseling beginning in 9th grade, study skills and SAT and ACT preparation as part of the core curriculum, and school-sponsored college trips to help students and parents make the best choice. 


Scholarships and Financial Assistance put TJ within reach
Because your child's future shouldn't be impacted by the ups and downs of the economy, Thomas Jefferson offers financial assistance and scholarships so that the cost of tuition is not a barrier for enrolling qualified students. Most financial assistance awards are need-based, and families re-apply each year
