Welcome to TJ Test Prep!
Thomas Jefferson Sci/Tech HS Admissions
***Updated for December 2020 Changes to TJ Admissions Process***
Proven results: 113 students have taken our Student Portrait Sheet (formerly Student Information Sheet) & Problem-Solving Essay Course in prior years and 81.4% have been admitted to TJ.
Cost-effective: Most prep centers are in-person, focus on the wrong content, and range from $2500-$15,000 per year for group classes. We offer our SPS/Essay course at an affordable rate. This includes unlimited access, several practice prompts, and instructional material hand-crafted by TJ Alumni.
Comprehensive: Most test prep centers have one main issue.
They ignore the SPS/Problem-Solving Essay of the admissions process. Many of our students have been admitted despite scoring 60-75% on the initial test, when it was offered. The SPS and Essay show admissions officers who you are and are your perfect opportunity to demonstrate your knowledge of STEM/TJ. The Student Portrait Sheet and Problem-Solving Essay are our speciality.
Experienced: We understand the ins and outs of admissions and TJ as a whole. We are run by recent TJHSST Alumni who were involved in a variety of extracurriculars and gained admission to top-tier universities.
Flexible: We don't require our students and parents to commit to months of ineffective in-person classes, which absorb weekends and prevent you from spending time with your kids. Our work is entirely remote, so you can practice anytime, anywhere. All you need is your laptop and brain!
100% satisfaction guarantee: If you don't like our product within 7 days, you get your money back.
Note: If your student is on free or reduced lunch, or may need any form of scholarship, we are happy to provide financial assistance for our products and services. We want every student to be able to take advantage of our products, regardless of background. Please contact us at the email toward the bottom of the page.

"Just wanted to update you that my son received an offer of admission to TJ this evening and was very happy about it :). I wanted to also thank you again for your guidance and help in preparing for the SIS/Essay exam. Your program, tips, feedback and responsiveness to questions was very helpful to him in organizing his ideas and thoughts and feeling comfortable and relaxed on the day of the exam so that he could do his best and demonstrate his abilities.

"Hello, I just wanted to say thank you for working with [my son]. He completed the SIS yesterday. The muscle memory kicked in. He finished with 20 minutes to spare. Regardless of how this process goes, going through those tests have been such a good experience for him...You guys were exactly what he needed these last 3 months!"

"TJSISEssayPrep prepared me extremely well for the second round of the TJ Admissions process. In fact, two of the SIS prompts were very similar to the practice prompts from the course. I strongly recommend them to all prospective TJ students"
