Our middle school and high school academic program is comprehensive, college preparatory, and taught within a Christian framework designed to prepare students for the academic demands of college and beyond. We offer college preparatory, Honors, and Advanced Placement courses. Thomas Jefferson Academy is known for its small-school environment. This allows our teachers to spend more time with the students and ensures that all learners’ needs are met. In middle school, we challenge students by providing vigorous academic coursework to prepare them for high school and make their transition as smooth as possible. High school credits are earned in eighth grade as well. The high school curriculum is designed to prepare our students for the academic demands of college and beyond. We currently have 100% college placement for our graduates and 94% of them will receive the HOPE scholarship. Our students may also participate in Dual Enrollment or Move on When Ready (MOWR) classes through a partnership with area colleges. This program allows them to earn college credit while still attending high school. WE currently have 66% of our junior and senior classes enrolled in MOWR. Our students consistently score above national average on the SAT and ACT.
Our middle school and high school students participate in One-Act Play and Literary. They also explore further into music theory and art appreciation in our Humanities classes. The athletic program gives students an arena in which to glorify God through the development and exercise of personal character, sportsmanship, athletic ability and self-discipline. TJA provides our young people abundant opportunities to participate in groups such as Beta Club, Chapel, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Jr. Beta Club, Key Club, Student Government Association, Yearbook, and 4H. These groups allow our students the opportunity to join in community outreach and volunteer projects throughout the school year.
Thomas Jefferson Academy offers a solid return on your investment by providing a challenging academic environment with opportunities to participate in top notch sports programs, the arts, and other extracurricular activities. Our students have various interests and it is our goal to foster these interests and help develop our students into the leaders of tomorrow.
