This report reviews National Student Clearinghouse (NSC) data on postsecondary enrollment, progression, and graduation outcome data for T.C.Williams High School graduates from 2007 to 2014. ACPS postsecondary outcomes, on average, exceeded those of similar schools across the nation; however, they trailed behind higher income, low minority, suburban schools for most benchmarked indicators.
Scholarship Fund of Alexandria Warns T.C. Williams Families to Beware

His clothes were ragged, but clean. His North Carolina family was on food stamps. It was the little black boy’s first day of school.
The boy, whose nickname was “Brother,” nervously climbed down the steps of his school bus to be greeted by his teacher. She leaned down to look him in the eye.
“Hey. What’s your name?” she asked.
“B-b-b-b-br-Brother,” he said with a stutter.
TC Williams, Alexandria's only public high school, has been a center of the community for 50 years. We Titans -- current students, alumni, parents and friends -- are a diverse group of ethnicities and socioeconimic levels but our individual differences meld to form a vibrant community. TC students push themselves academically in AP and Dual Enrollment classes, acquire 21st-century skills in state-of-the-art Career and Technical Education facilities, play 20 sports and join over 70 clubs, developing into the best people they can be.
The first of the monthly T.C. Williams Principal's Chats for the 2016-17 school year will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 5. The chat, to be held at 8 a.m. in the principal's conference room at the King Street campus, offers an opportunity to talk about a variety of school issues with Principal Jesse Dingle. Parents from Minnie Howard and King Street campuses are invited. The event has no set agenda and the topics are as broad as the interests of the attendees. Light refreshments will be served. All are invited. The chats are typically scheduled for the first Wednesday of each month.
ACPS Academic Access is open! This is the ACPS program that allows parents and students to view their grades 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Letters regarding log-in information were mailed to parents. We encouraged both students and parents to monitor grades on a continual basis.
