Why TJ

Small School. Big Impact.

Thank you for your interest in Thomas Jefferson School (TJ). Our top-ranked school is internationally recognized as one of the best boarding and day schools. We are ranked in the Top 2% in America for Best High Schools for STEM and Best College Prep Private High Schools.  

Choosing an independent school is a very important decision. I urge you to visit our picturesque campus and speak with our students and faculty. TJ considers prospective students with strong personal qualifications, the aptitude for a college preparatory curriculum and a commitment to extracurricular involvement.  

Students and faculty interact in and out of the classroom, and our small class sizes fosters an environment where lively discussions are both encouraged and expected. Clubs, organizations, sports, and many other activities help our students become leaders.

When the time comes for college, parents want to know their child has been properly prepared for the challenges of a university education, in and out of the classroom. At TJ, we understand success is not accidental. We realize it requires both academic and character development.  

Since 1946, we have instilled intellectual rigor, personal and social responsibility in our students as they prepare for college life.  I invite you to visit TJ for yourself and experience what makes us one of the top schools in the country!
