Thank you for your interest in Thomas Jefferson School (TJ)!  Our internationally recognized boarding and day school is home to a wide array of students, faculty and staff.  We like to think of ourselves as a small place that thinks big.  TJ students are bright, capable, and enjoy learning. Intelligence is definitely a good thing here!  

Extraordinary things happen in our campus community.  Our day and boarding students find this the kind of place where anything is possible.  We do our best to help students learn about themselves just as much as they learn in the classroom.  Words you will hear around here quite a often are Challenge, Independence, and Community. These are all traits we want our students to learn and know.  View our Student Prospectus to learn more. 

Our nearly 70 year tradition of providing the best in a liberal-arts, college preparatory curriculum sets us apart. Students and faculty interact in and out of the classroom.  Discussion is encouraged and expected.  Clubs, organizations, sports, and many other activities help our students become leaders.  Excellence is our motto and our aspiration.

We welcome visitors throughout the year and can't wait for you to come experience TJ for a Day! Contact us today to schedule your visit
