Fairfax Collegiate will offer a TJ SIS Essay Boot Camp in the winter. This boot camp is a follow-up to our Fall TJ Exam Prep Boot Camps.
This boot camp prepares students for the semifinalist round of the TJ admissions process, which will be held on Saturday, February 9.
It is open both to students who have or have not taken the Fall TJ Exam Prep Boot Camps.
Fairfax Collegiate has offered summer TJ Test Prep courses since 2004, and each summer over 300 students attend our TJ Test Prep courses.
The fee for attending the boot camp (six class sessions) is $500. Each section of the boot camp has a strict enrollment limit of 12 students, so we encourage interested families to register as soon as possible.
This course uses a similar schedule and instructional materials as our TJ SIS Essay Prep 7-8 summer course.
The TJ Admissions Committee does not announce which students are selected as semifinalists until January 17. We believe students are best served by having a longer period of time to prepare. In the event that your child is not selected as a semifinalist, we have designed the SIS Essay Boot Camp to still be a highly valuable opportunity to improve their planning and writing skills.
