Frederick County Public Schools (FCPS) announced that their on time graduation rate has exceeded the state’s average.

This is the 10th consecutive year FCPS’ on time graduation rate has exceeded the state’s average on time graduation rate.

The Virginia Department of Education confirms that FCPS’ on time graduate rate for the class of 2022 was 94.6 percent.

Virginia’s on time graduation rate average is 92.1 percent.

This is the fourth consecutive year the FCPS’ rate has climbed.

Since 2011 high schools have had to meet an annual benchmark for graduation to earn state accreditation and Frederick County has gone from 85 percent to nearly 95 percent.

Interim School Superintendent John Lamanna says the community should take great pride in the Frederick County School systems’ graduation rate especially given the challenges of the past few years.

Lamanna points out that the rate is a testament to the perseverance of students, families, staff and administrators.

FCPS offers an online survey for residents to add their thoughts on what they believe to be the qualifications that are necessary for the next School Superintendent here.
