Aspire TJ” with Porter students. Aspire TJ is a free virtual TJ prep program organized by former Porter students, Joshua Lim, Christopher Arraya, Zaeem Qureshi, and Rushil Sidhu (another TJ student from PWC). This program is exclusively for Prince William County students. Their goal is to help aspiring middle school students who want to attend TJ by sharing thier experiences with the admissions process and helping them prepare their math and science skills specifically for the TJHSST admission test. In addition, they will be able to answer any questions from the students about their transition from PWCS to TJHSST. 


The program will be held virtually from August 3 to August 7 via Zoom or Discord, depending on which is more popular or convenient. Sessions will be from 10-12 PM

We know that the news about the COVID-19 Virus has been troubling for many of our students.  Feelings of fear, anxiety, and helplessness are normal any time we experience such global events.  We want to do our best to ensure that students have accurate information about this virus and it’s spread.  PWCS Student Services have prepared resources to help us help students during this stressful time. Porter Counselors have been educating students on how to be safe during these hard times.
