Profile of a graduate

Our story

In June 2016, Louisa County Public Schools began to explore two questions: What are the skills necessary for success for all students to become positive and contributing global citizens? What does the Profile of a Graduate look like for our students?

For Louisa County Public Schools, the Profile of a Graduate looks beyond the recall of facts, memorization, and high-stakes testing. It equips students and staff with the knowledge and skills to communicate effectively, to think critically, to collaborate, to be creative, and to become positive and contributing global citizens.
