About Fairfax County Public Schools
Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) is a catalyst that transforms our community's most valuable potential - our children - and shapes a thriving future. We are the community's gathering place where, together, we foster creative thinking, a culture of caring, and lifelong connections. In our schools, students share a diversity of experiences that prepare them for success in a global society; teachers creatively challenge and inspire young minds; and parents actively engage in their children's future.
