    Students & Families

    Virginia’s Profile of a Graduate is a the result of a conversation between students, families educators and community partners, that graduation requirements should be more than passing scores on tests. At Fauquier County Public Schools, we want graduates who equally possess content knowledge and workplace skills and believe students should be exposed to more hands-on and interdisciplinary experiences, project-based learning and community engagement.
