    Getting to Know TJ in a Virtual Environment

    We recognize that the best way to get to know TJ is to spend time on campus and in our classrooms. Until we are able to welcome back guests, we invite you to engage with the school virtually. Below we have linked a number of recent videos that are emblematic of the TJ experience. We will also post upcoming virtual admissions events to this page. To begin, we ask that you please complete an inquiry form to be added to our school e-newsletter. This newsletter will contain the most up-to-date admissions dates, deadlines and events, as well as campus news.
