What is TJEd High?

Who is it for?

TJEd High! is an online liberal arts mentoring service for youth, designed to motivate and empower serious Scholar Phase study -- starting with where your youth is at, and helping them take successful steps forward to reach their ideal.


TJEd High! will enhance and leverage whatever other studies the youth is involved in -- whether it's private studies with a local mentor; public, private or charter school; co-op/commonwealth/Vanguard; online courses; etc.

  1. Youth aged 13-18 who are prepared to do weekly readings and discussion at a basic level.
  2. A "Super-charged" honors level with additional readings and mentoring content is available at no additional cost for students who want to challenge themselves to even more depth and rigor.


TJEd High! is all about meeting you where you are, then guiding and inspiring you to take the next step, and then the next, and the next, through a full 5,000-hour Scholar Phase.

Look Like?

TJEd High! is designed to inspire and help lead youth to

We have a lot of fun and really lean in to the invigorating work of a successful Scholar Phase.

TJEd High! enrollment is semester by semester. Upon purchase you will be directed to a simple form with a few steps. Fill out the parent information and then the Scholar's name and email. This will ensure we connect the families properly and create a TJEd Learning Portal account for the Scholar.


Tuition only covers access to the course and the mentoring during the semester. It does not cover the books and other materials that may be needed. 


Between each semester will be a 2-4 week break. Enrollment is recommended before the semester starts (big surprise, I know), but we keep enrollment open during the first few weeks. You may still request to enroll at anytime and we'll take this on a case by case basis. 


Each of the video Mentoring content is pre-recorded for on-demand streaming that fits your schedule. Here is an overview of the schedule, and what each week in TJEd High! looks like:

A Key Component &
Our "Secret Sauce"

Written Discussion Forum

The written discussions are a key component of TJEd High! This is our special sauce. We mix great mentoring, with a great peer community and a one-room schoolhouse approach all together.


We have Scholars who's educational background is anywhere from just getting started to advanced. We have Scholars in many countries around the world. To maximize the experience of the large and diverse class size we break the scholars down into separate cohorts, or, as we call them, discussion families. We limit each discussion family to a few dozen scholars. We create as many discussion families as needed depending on the semester's student count. 


This is sometimes a struggle for new scholars and for those who don't write as well. We understand the struggle--everyone starts out new. Don't let this trouble you! What we've found is that the Scholars have really flourished because of the discussions. Their studies have improved, their thinking and comprehension have greatly expanded, their communication skills are honed, and their language arts significantly improve over the years of participating in the discussions. 


There are some mentor lead or instigated discussions threads, but most of them are peer lead and instigated. The mentors get ample opportunity to coach the Scholars in their questions, disagreements and approach. This allows us to take these ideas and dig into them for days and sometimes for weeks! This has made for some very deep and informative discussions. 


The quick thinkers and loud talkers still get to post a lot, but the mullers and reserved Scholars are also put on equal footing. The process is slowed down, you don't have to worry about speaking fast enough or grab everyone's attention. Each post is considered, each post is formulated and can be edited. Many shy Scholars have come out of their shells and found their voice. 


The written discussion forums have been truly excellent! We're looking forward to seeing you there! 

Family Rate

Meeting the educational needs of multiple family members - teens, parents and younger children -- can not only be complex, it can be prohibitively expensive. We're in the trenches with you, and we understand the dynamics involved!


To help leverage the impact of Leadership Education in your home, we offer discounted rates* for families with multiple Scholars participating in TJEd High.


The first Scholar will enroll at the base rate while tuition for each additional Scholar will be discounted.


*As always, we are delighted to be a blessing to those in financial straits. Please let us know if you need special arrangements in order for your motivated, qualified student to take part in TJEd High!


How to Access the Family Rate

The first Scholar will enroll at the base rate while tuition for each additional Scholar will be discounted.


First, click the Regular Rate Enrollment below and add the desires semester to the cart.

Second, come back to this tab and click the Family Rate Enrollment button below and add the number of additional scholars to your cart.

Third, check out and fill out the farm for each scholar you enrolled. 



It's as simple as that! :)

TJEd High Syllabus
and Two Year Rotation

TJEd High! is a continuous, rotating two-year A/B program (three semesters per year), with available entry into an Advanced program for qualified students, starting Fall 2019.

  • The "A-year" syllabi begin with Fall of an odd year, and run through Summer of the even year (2021-2022; 2023-2024).
  • The "B-year" syllabi begin with Fall of an even year, and run through Summer of the odd year (2022-2023; 2024-2025).


There are no prerequisites and no specific starting or ending semester. Students may enter the rotation at the beginning of any semester and do a 2-year run before moving on to the next level. 


We have found that having more experienced students working right alongside newly entering students has benefits for both! The more experienced students get to lead and mentor and the new students get great peer help and the vision that they, too, will mentor others in their turn. This is one of the great strengths of having a "one-room-school" type of experience.

What if I’m already enrolled in another program?

Great! This is a good thing. Students who are enrolled in public school, online high school, private or charter schools, Commonwealth schools, Vanguard schools, homeschooling co-ops, or other programs can use the TJEd High! mentoring to be more inspired, study more passionately and effectively, and add increased depth and skills to their other studies.


Look over the "What it looks like?" and the semester's syllabus sections (see the buttons below) to gauge the time/energy commitment. We have purposefully designed TJEd High to have minimal class time to allow plenty of personal study and discussion time.


TJEd High! is listed with many online umbrella schools that will cover tuition. If you are part of any of these programs, check to see if we are listed. If we are not please feel free to request us to be listed. We're happy to assist in this process!
