Thomas Jefferson High School for Science & Technology (TJHSST Prep) for 8th Graders
Academies of Loudoun (AOL) Test Prep: Academy of Science (AOS) and Academy of Engineering & Technology (AET)Learn More
Dear Mrs. Cart,
Our 8th grader was just accepted into Academies of Loudoun AET - Engineering Pathway (his 1st choice program)!!! Thank you for the AOL STEM Thinking Test Prep - the online program that helped prepare him for the AOL admission test. The material your team provided gave us insight into the test format, allowed us to practice the test's timing structure, and gave us an idea of which STEM areas needed additional practice. We found your program to be organized and effective. With scheduling around family obligations, the ability to come in for classes was difficult for us; thus, we are thankful you offered an online option. We will most definitely recommend your program to others; however, I would suggest the in-person option as I think there is much that can be gained with live tutoring. Thank you again for your support and help with our child's scholastic goals! Sincerely, The D Family
Hi Krishna, I just wanted to let you know that Aruni got into TJ. Thank you for your timely guidance. Regards, IS
Hi Krishna, I just wanted to update you - we learned last night that B had been accepted into TJ. We now have a tough decision: Academies of Loudoun's AET-IT (which he originally wanted) or TJ (which he is inkling towards now). I understand your sons went to TJ in the past. If you have a few minutes sometime this week, would you be available for a quick call? I would appreciate hearing your thoughts and experience as a parent with a kid who went to TJ to get some ideas and feedback.
I am very content with how the test turned out. I was fully prepared for the TJ SPS prompts as they were similar to how we practiced. The TJ problem-solving essay was my favorite part because I answered it in-depth and submitted it on time.
The writing course improved my writing skills drastically. And if I didn’t take it, I wouldn’t have done as well on the AOL prompt.
I hope all is well. My son (Sh) joined your classes last year, and these classes were super helpful. He was offered admission from AOL and TJ and chose to go with TJ. My second son Sw will apply to both of these schools this year.
Thank you for organizing prep classes for our small group for the past two years. JP took the SAT on October 6th, and his scores came back today - 800 in math and 770 in reading and writing. He took the math subject test and also earned an 800 on that one. I know he would not have done nearly that well without all the time and effort you and your teachers put into getting him ready. So THANK YOU!!!!! - Betsy
John's score improved from 320 to 720 in SAT Reading and 410 to 750 in SAT Math. He got a perfect score in his essay and an overall score of 710 in Writing. Thank you for all the extra help, especially with the college essay. YSC boosted not only his academic GPA but also his scores and confidence. - Grace Heller.
Nihal scored 99th percentile in NNAT! Thank you so much for all your time and help on this. Nihal and his mom are pleased and say thanks to you and Krishna. - R.
Curtis was offered final admission to TJHSST! He got 49 out of 50 in Math and Verbal! - Ingrid
Mattia got 750 in Math, 700 in Reading, and 700 in Writing! - Patricia
My daughter got 96th percentile in IAAT! Thank you, and a big thank you to Mr. Billington and Ms. Perry - Felix
Summer is enjoying TJ! I am so grateful for your help in IAAT and TJ prep. I would love to help you spread the word. - Shaista
Taylor was admitted to TJ! She is so happy. Melanie
AOS letter came in today! Faraaz got into both AOS and AET. Thank you so much for all your help.
Nayana accepted her final admissions offer to TJHSST! And her younger sister, Chetana, got 99th percentile in IAAT. Thank you so much for all your help. Bali
Thank you so much for sending all the info regarding teacher recommendations. Your Saturday session on teacher recommendation strategy helped a lot. Kumi
Thank you and Alison for such a productive IAAT and SOL preparation! Our daughter, Yasmin, has made it to Algebra 1! Her IAAT came as 99% and SOL as 510. We are happy with how your tutoring system works and would like to start preparing Yasmin for her upcoming Advanced SCAT and STB to get into the Intensive Studies CTY summer residential course. Thank you again! U & K
We are very excited that Kana got in TJ! Thank you for your program, it really worked. Now Kana's little sister is considering going to TJ. I look forward to seeing you at TJ after this summer. Have a nice evening, Kumi
We wanted to share the good news that Shiraz was accepted to TJHSST! His Math score was 49/50, and his English score was 42/50. We want to thank you for your guidance through the SIS boot camp. We believe the SIS boot camp and the recommendation letter info session helped a lot, especially since Shiraz had not taken any other preparatory classes other than a test boot camp two months before the test. Thanks much, Megha
