TJHS will be offering the SAT on October 11, 2023, during the school day for any Seniors interested in taking it.  Seniors may register in the High School Counseling Office beginning this Friday, September 1, until Friday, September 8.   Cost is $60, either in cash or a check made payable to Thomas Jefferson High School.  Fee waivers are available to those who qualify.
Note:  Any student who registers but is unable to take the SAT Test on the test date will only be able to get $30 back (per College Board).

All students in grades 9-11 will take the PSAT in the fall.  Students will receive their score reports and have their test books returned to them to review the exam and prepare for future exams.  Students can also connect their PSAT scores with Khan Academy (through the College Board) for a free, personalized online test prep program.

We recommend that students take the SAT and/or the ACT during the spring of their junior years.  This gives them the flexibility to take the test again in the fall of senior year if they are not happy with their scores.  SAT Subject Tests are only necessary if students are applying to colleges that require or highly recommend them.
