Curriculum Night 2021 Introductory Video

Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology, a regional Governor's school in Northern Virginia, offers seven years of computer science. Our goal is to provide a world class computer science education to our students and to disseminate curriculum materials to other academic institutions.

  • CS Information for Rising 9th Graders
  • CS Readiness Assessment Information - Will be scheduled for a date in August, and the sign-up procedure will be posted here later this spring. The readiness assessment is for students who want to take Data Structures as their first Computer Science course at TJ. Students who have already scored a 5 on the AP Computer Science A exam (this is rare) may enroll in Data Structures without also taking the TJ readiness assessment.
