Portrait of a Graduate


The MCPS Portrait of a Graduate is a collaborative project to define what it should mean to be a graduate of Marion County Public Schools. We sought input from community and business leaders, brainstormed with teachers, and considered everything from academic knowledge to practical and soft skills.

Simply put, our Portrait of a Graduate is our vision of what every graduate should exemplify. To that end, we outlined our 6 C’s -- Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking, Creative Thinking, Content, and Commitment.

These are the six broad areas that comprise our Portrait of a Graduate, which includes but extends beyond traditional academic content.MCPS Portrait of a Gradaute
