Promise Academies

  • Harrison & William Wells Brown Elementaries

    Fayette County Public Schools works hard to ensure that every student is successful. For those at Harrison Elementary and William Wells Brown Elementary, the district wants to take extra steps to meet that goal through a new initiative called the Promise Academies.

    Although nothing has been finalized, the plan is to provide enhanced educational offerings for these students by extending the school day and adding more days to the school year. This new structure would allow FCPS to build in more learning time and give students additional enrichment experiences in art, music, computer, physical education, and world languages.
