Get Involved
Students can volunteer in two programs to get recognition and a special graduation achievement. The FCPS Service Program requires 30-40 hours of community service and comes with a black cord worn to wear with the student's cap and gown during graduation. Contact assistant principal Amanda Hudson (aahudson@fcps.edu) for more information. The Virginia Department of Excellence in Civics Education Program requires 50 hours of community service and at least a B in history and government classes. Participants receive a civic seal on their diplomas. Click here for more information.
