Boarding and Day Programs for Boys & Girls (Grades 7-12)

Academics:

Photo of College Prep School in St. Louis, MOAt Thomas Hefferson we offer a rigorous core classical curriculum with English, math, science, social studies, classical languages, modern languages, fine arts and athletics.

Above all, a classical education will push and keep wide open the two doors of higher learning: numbers and words. At Thomas Jefferson (TJ), you will learn Latin, Greek, and either French or Italian; you will read through and discuss a collection of books that are at once both timeless and timely; and you will write and face scrupulous line-editing almost every day, including while on vacations.

We don’t want a previous weak and lopsided background in high school to decide which door in life you choose to open. We want you to be able to choose freely.

Liberal education, after all, has as its root and end freedom – freedom of the most important kind, intellectual freedom based on a head well filled and well formed. The job market will always be looking for that, and the world will always be better off for it.

Advanced Placment Courses:
We offer AP Courses in all subject areas including AP calculus and AP courses in science and history.

We strive to help you gain admission to colleges that offer the right academic level and atmosphere for you so that you will go on to be happy and productive at the college you choose. With this in mind we offer intensive prep courses for SAT and ACT.

Athletics:
All students participate in the athletic program. Occasionally, however, a student may wish to continue with another athletic interest outside of school (like swimming, baseball, dance, or karate). In such cases, TJ’s flexible afternoon schedule allows such a student to pursue this interest in place of our own offerings.

Varsity Sports
These usually meet four days a week for hourlong practices. The teams compete against other schools our size, both in regular games and weekend tournaments. TJ offers three varsity sports for both boys and girls:
- Soccer
- Basketball (JV also)
- Volleyball (JV also)

Intramural Sports
These usually meet twice a week, and times will vary depending on the activity (somewhere between 45 and 90 minutes). In recent years, offerings have included:
- Tennis
- Yoga/pilates
- Weightlifting
