Grow Your Own Program

Learn how FCPS grows their own teachers and operational employees

Grow Your Own Programs

Grow Your Own is an adopted concept put in place to help combat the current nationwide decline of an available teacher and trade workforce. Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) has a growing need for teachers and operational staff to work in our school division. At FCPS our programs identify students and employees who are interested in pursuing a career in teaching and operational positions as well as opportunities to support their goal.

Current FCPS programs include the Special Education Teaching Licensing Cohort, Educators Rising Club, Early Childhood Careers, Teachers for Tomorrow, Trades for Tomorrow pathways, and Back2Fairfax Teacher and Operational Seminars.
