FCPS Portrait of a Graduate

During the development of the 2017 Strategic Plan, FCPS asked families about their dreams for their children and the qualities they want their children to develop to be successful in our rapidly changing, increasingly diverse, and global society. The result of that work is our Fayette County Public Schools Portrait of a Graduate — our promise to students and families that every learner will finish high school with the experiences, opportunities, and supports necessary to become Academically Prepared, College and Career Ready, Civically Engaged, Culturally Competent, and Equipped for the Future.

While gathering input for the 2022 Strategic Plan, our students, families, and community expressed significant buy-in for the FCPS Portrait of a Graduate.  Our new strategic plan centers on the recognition that the development of these attributes begins by collaborating with families during their child’s formative years preceding their school enrollment, and continues to build in preschool through elementary, middle, and high school.

Students are individuals with learning styles, aspirational goals, and needs unique to them. Team FCPS stands ready to champion each of their journeys with encouragement and support as they strive to achieve their post-secondary goals and become the very best versions of themselves because the true benchmark of success is not a high school diploma, but where that diploma takes our students in life.

Goals for Every Student
