Course Selection & Summer School Update

Thank you to all of the students and families for your work with the counselors to get student course selections finalized and into the system as we build the school’s master schedule for the 2020-21 school year. Course verification emails were sent to the enrolling parents of each student on May 2, 2020.

A News You Choose was sent to the TJHSST community last night that provided everyone with a summary of our plans for Summer School.  You can find this message to the community here:  TJHSST Summer Update

  • Please note that the ONLY course that incoming 9th grade students can take with TJHSST this Summer will be Research Statistics 1 (RS1) and that RS1 has a prerequisite of Algebra 2.
  • Only students CURRENTLY enrolled in and scheduled to complete Algebra 2 this Spring will be approved to take RS1.  
  • For those families committed to engaging in some sort of academic program this Summer, we are recommending that incoming 9th graders take advantage of some of the Skills Builders and Refreshers that TJHSST will be offering FREE OF CHARGE. More information and details of these opportunities will be coming soon.
  • If students are still interested in taking a course for credit, while we are not encouraging it, Economics and Personal Finance is available through the FCPS Online Campus Summer Program.

Please remember that Summer School is in no way expected or required to attend TJHSST. Students can earn all of the diploma requirements necessary to graduate and pursue four years of any elective course without needing to take Summer School.

Four Year Course Plan with Elective for all 4 years and No Summer School

More information is available on these pages Class of 2024 Frequently Asked Questions | Curricular Resources | Summer Programs 2020 and students can speak with their Transition Counselor as well.

Sincerely,

The TJHSST Department of Student Services
