TJ offers opportunities exclusive to incoming freshmen to get organized and familiar with the high school experience well in advance of starting back-to-school. During orientation, students review and receive schedules and have the opportunity to meet some of their 9th grade teachers the spring prior to freshman year. Freshman Academy (aka 9th Grade Orientation) takes place a couple weeks before the start of school and helps students understand school culture, expectations, policies and procedures. It’s a great time to get familiar with the building, location of classrooms and resources, and begin to make new friends and feel at home.
9th Grade Academy:
Dates: Monday, Aug. 6 – Friday, Aug. 10
Time: 7:30 – 11:30 a.m.
Location: Thomas Jefferson High School
