We are the conduit that connects the community to important initiatives in the district that support student achievement, career path development, and gap needs for kids. Our website is a great way to find out how Educate Fairfax works with the school district. 

Educate Fairfax invests in long-term outcomes for FCPS students, whether through gap needs for disadvantaged students, recognition of stellar educators, literacy efforts for the youngest learners, or direct grants to teachers to support work-based learning.
