Congratulations to the Class of 2026 and Welcome to TJHSST!

TJ ACADEMIC BOOSTERS (TJAB) is a parent volunteer organization which supports students and team sponsors participating in academic (8th period) activities at TJHSST. The volunteer team raises funds to support TJ's academic teams with thousands of dollars every year so that the teams can fund registration expenses for events, and pay for their sponsors and/or coaches to travel with them.

TJAB is independent from the TJPTSA or VA PTA. Membership with TJAB (or donating to TJAB) does not mean membership with TJPTSA or vice versa.

Welcome to TJ and Join TJAB!

Memberships Coach travel
Donations Team registration fees

Fairfax County provides only a very small amount of the funding needed to allow the nearly 400 students on TJ's academic teams to compete each year at local, state, regional, national, and even international competitions. We rely on donations from the TJ community to help pay for everything else.

How Online Payments Work

Each time you select an item you will press the Add to Cart button which places the item in your shopping cart. You may purchase one item or several items. You will see your shopping cart each time you add an item to it.

Each item in your cart has a quantity field so that you can change the quantity to order. To remove an item from your cart, click on the Remove check box next to the item and then press the Update Cart button. Two buttons on the lower right of the cart will allow you to Continue Shopping or Checkout. You can press View Cart at any time to check on your order

When you are done shopping, simply click the Check Out button in the cart and follow the directions on the payment screens. Your payment information will be handled on PayPal's secure server offering you 128-bit encryption for the highest level of security available.

How do I pay?

Paypal Website Payments accepts VISA, MasterCard, Discover, Amex, and PayPal. Use credit or debit cards.

Is PayPal safe to use?

According to the PayPal site:

PayPal protects your financial information with industry-leading security and fraud prevention systems. When you use PayPal, your financial information is not shared with the merchant. Once your payment is complete, you will be emailed a receipt for this transaction.

* If the shopping cart appears in a new window or tab and the "Continue Shopping" button doesn't work, try manually switching between the two windows or tabs as you shop.
