Athletic Program

Attention All Football and Basketball Fans:
Following the recommendation of Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office, all fans entering our football and basketball games will be searched with a handheld metal detector by police officers.  Bags will also be searched. This is a coordinated effort between the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office and Thomas Jefferson Classical Academy to increase the protection of our students, athletics and fans.  Your support and patience as we learn to become efficient with this new process is greatly appreciated.

 

Thomas Jefferson Classical Academy is extremely proud of our strong athletic program and the performance of our student athletes, both in the classroom and on the field.  Thomas Jefferson is a proud member of the NCHSAA 1A Southern Piedmont Conference and was one of the first charter schools in the state to participate in the 1A classification in all sports including football.

About our mascot:

The classical mythological figure of the Gryphon has been selected as the symbol for Thomas Jefferson Classical Academy. It was used in the Persian, Greek and Roman cultures as well as in western heraldry.

Since ancient times it has been a symbol of vigilance, loyalty, strength, speed, gracefulness, and gentleness. As part eagle and part lion, it was master of the sky as well as the land. A goal for the academy is to have all graduates imitate the Gryphon by being able to command the heights of knowledge and truth and being able to use them in down to earth situations.
