Middle school students prepare for the semifinalist round of the Thomas Jefferson High School Admissions Exam: the Student Information Sheet (SIS) Essay Test.
Students are exposed to typical SIS essay prompts and learn what the TJ Admissions Committee is looking for in their essays. They also prepare for the "Problem-Solving Essay" section, which requires a written response to a challenging mathematics or science-related question.
The course includes significant time practicing personal statements, instruction and feedback in writing organized, informative, and grammatically correct essays, and strategies for how to efficiently work under time constraints.
The course features Fairfax Collegiate's exclusive TJ SIS Essay Prep guide.
