The traditional school year is over! It might be time to take a break from formal education, but it's never time to stop learning. Perhaps it's time to adopt the philosophy of A Thomas Jefferson Education into your family. to prepare for the new formal school year in the fall. This philosphy can work whether you do public school, homeschool, private or charter.
The beauty of the Thomas Jefferson Education philosophy is that it works! (For the most part.) It produces beautiful delicious fruit in the form of children and adults who know the classics and lead others towards liberty. It can incorporate all the good you are already familiar with in the form of unschooling, classical homeschooling, Montessori, Waldorf, natural seasons of learning, and agency-based education.
Do you want objective, third-party reviews of the classes, products, and services available in the TJED community so that you can decide whether or not to use them for your own or your children's education?
Have you been inspired by a TJED event and want to let others know of its greatness? Have you been disappointed by a different one and want to warn about it?
Are you excited about a book you've read for your own education and want to share an epiphany you've gained?
Have you read a great picture book or chapter book to your children and want to tell others about it?
Do you have notes from a seminar or class based on TJED that you want to freely share?
You've come to the right place! This website is a place to share and review books, classes, schools, products, and services marketed to the TJED community. (see to learn what TJED means.)
This site is owned independently of any founders, graduates, faculty or board members of George Wythe College or any family members of the aforementioned.

The mission of TJED Library is to increase your leadership education by having a place to review the products and services offered by the TJED community.
