Seal of Arts Excellence

Fayette County Public Schools recognizes graduating seniors who demonstrate an advanced level of specialization in a visual and performing arts discipline. Students earning the Seal of Arts Excellence receive:

  • A medal to wear at their graduation ceremony (in compliance with the regalia guidelines)

  • An emblem on their high school diploma; and
  • A notation on their transcript.

The Seal of Arts Excellence -- first offered to the Class of 2024 -- allows seniors to make concrete connections between their artistic endeavors and the FCPS focus on high levels of achievement, cultural competence, and preparation for the future. The portfolio should represent a student’s best work throughout their high school experience and showcase how the arts truly embody an "Education Beyond Expectation."
