What is TJEd High!?

TJEd High! is an online liberal arts mentoring service for youth aged 13 and up, and is designed to motivate and empower serious Scholar Phase study, and enhance and leverage whatever other studies the youth is involved in - whether it be private studies with a local mentor; public, private or charter school; co-op/commonwealth/Vanguard, etc.; online courses; etc.

Who's it for?

  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.

What Does it Cost?

For Fall of 2017 only, we are offering the following low introductory rates, secured for the duration of your continuous enrollment:

  • $45 per month for tuition 
  • After first youth in household enrolls at full price, additional youth cost just $15/month per student; contact us for this discounted family rate 

[For families who have multiple students or who have financial concerns, please contact us here to inquire about special arrangements >>]


How does it work?

Participants in TJEd High! receive:

  • A study plan with weekly readings and assignments, with additional optional readings for those who want more rigor, designed by Oliver DeMille, Ian Cox and Emma DeMille Cox
  • Weekly video mentoring content (approximately 1-2 hours, pre-recorded so that students can view on-demand in any timezone)
  • Midweek Bonus video mentoring (a brief, up-to-the-minute check-in, with one of your mentors giving feedback on the online discussions, sharing an epiphany, relating the week's studies to current events or personal experiences, sharing a "Transformational Model,", and otherwise amping you up to help you stay focused, inspired, and effective in your studies). Including: 
    • 3 Key Technologies of Genius 
    • The Ant and the Elephant, the Conscious and the Subconscious 
    • The Productive Zone
    • But, will I ever use math in real life?
    • Tests, Trials, and Traps
    • Level 5 and 6 Time Management
  • Moderated online discussion throughout the week, in an exclusive environment accessible only to mentors and students enrolled in the course


What if I'm already enrolled in another program?

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

Who are the mentors?

  • Ian Cox, Lead Mentor
  • Emma (DeMille) Cox, Lead Mentor
  • Oliver DeMille, Lead Mentor
  • Eliza (DeMille) Robinson, Mentor
  • Oliver James DeMille, Mentor
  • Missy (Nelson) DeMille, Mentor
  • Freeborn DeMille, Mentor

Ian and Emma Cox [aged 28 and 25] are young, energetic, and very much in tune with the experience of gaining a great education in youth. They are a husband and wife team who are both personally mentored by Oliver DeMille in their now post-graduate level of studies. Ian and Emma are passionate about helping youth step up to the Love of Study, so that they spend their hours learning and refining their skills, broadening their exposure and deepening their understanding.

Subscribers to our Mentoring in the Classics series have raved at how their depth and insights not only speak to the parents, but motivate and inspire their children and youth! The TJEd High! online discussions will be moderated primarily by the Lead Mentors, with others from our TJEd team chiming in.
