BFA graduates have the knowledge, skills, and experiences to make the best choices for themselves, their profession, and their community.

An Overview of the BFA Fairfax Middle & High School Advisory Experience

Why?

Learning and growth are best understood and represented by the learner.

How?

Provide opportunities for learners to demonstrate what they know, understand and are able to do, their areas of growth, and their plans for continued learning.

What?

Provide a framework for a series of exhibitions that help learners create and share a body of evidence of their growth as learners.

Grade 7: Preparing for 8th Grade Student Exhibition

Grade 8 (Spring): Student Exhibition

Grade 9: Preparing for Sophomore Student Exhibition

Grade 10 (Spring): Sophomore Exhibition

Grade 11: Outreach Opportunity, Preparing for Senior Capstone

Grade 12 (Spring): Senior Capstone


Each student’s path toward Proficiency Based Graduation includes documentation on their google website of three components:

1. Who am I as a person and a learner?

2. What are my near and far goals?

3. What is my evidence that I am meeting the Proficiencies required for Graduation?

The goal of the advisory time is for students to have the support and guidance to accomplish these 3 components listed above.
