For a variety of reasons, every year, a a few dozen very capable and high achieving students "fall through the cracks" and do not get a seat in the freshman class at TJ. Such students have only two options left if they wish to attend TJ. Transfer to TJ in the 10th or the 11th grade. We strongly advise that any student who desires to transfer to TJ should aim to transfer as a sophomore! It is critical that the student spend at least three years at TJ to benefit from TJHSST's resources and learning environments.
So, how do you go about doing the right preparations to maximize your chance of transfer to TJ in 10th grade.
Since 1993, we have helped about 20 students transfer to TJ as sophomores. While we cannot provide specific advice until you take our SAT assessment, you must begin by reading the advice (and requirements) stipulated by TJHSST for sophomore transfer. After reading this, you can schedule an appointment for our SAT assessment. We will provide you complete plan and guidance necessary for doing well on the SAT and for distinguishing your application from your competition.
