News, Schools

From Fairfax County Public Schools:


Applications for Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology (TJHSST), the Governor’s Regional School for science and technology in Northern Virginia, are now available in all public middle schools in participating school districts and many private schools. At each middle school, a designated counselor has applications, brochures, and newsletters about the admissions process. If a student cannot obtain an application from a middle school or private school, or if the student is home schooled, he or she should call the Admissions Office, at 571-423-3770, for an application.

The initial application, which registers the applicant for the TJHSST admissions test in December, is a one-page form. Applications will be due to the designated middle school counselor or to the TJHSST Admissions Office (Fairfax County Public Schools, Gatehouse Administrative Center, 8115 Gatehouse Road, Suite 2600, Falls Church, Virginia 22042) no later than Friday, October 21. This is a firm deadline to which no exceptions will be made for any reason. Enrollment in a test preparation class does not constitute application or acceptance to TJHSST.

Additional information regarding the TJHSST admissions process can be found at www.TJAdmissions.org.

The admissions and school staffs are planning an Open House on Saturday, October 1, from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m., for eighth grade students and their parents to learn about the school. Reservations are not required. The Open House will include presentations about the school program and admissions; opportunities for prospective students and their parents to talk with current students about classes, homework, and activities; and tours of the school.
