Fairfax Collegiate has offered summer TJ Test Prep courses since 2004, and each summer over 300 students attend our TJ Test Prep courses.

The Fall TJ Test Prep Boot Camps feature our proprietary Fairfax Collegiate TJ Test Prep workbook, which has been updated with new practice problems and updated topics. We augment our workbook with a variety of commercially published test prep material.

The fee for each boot camp (six class sessions) is $500. There is a discount of $50 for attending both the math and the verbal/science boot camps. Each boot camp has a strict enrollment limit of 12 students, so we encourage interested families to register as soon as possible.
