Prospective Residents


Welcome to the Fox Chapel Area School District! This section of our website includes an overview of our school district and the many accomplishments we have achieved as a community. As you look at the achievements of our students and the many things we accomplish together as the Fox Chapel Area community, you will see why we are #FCProud.

From the school district’s inception in 1958, the community has continued to expect excellence from our students and the district. That tradition continues today and results in high standards, high expectations, and high performance. Our students demonstrate exemplary academic achievement in all subject areas and at all grade levels, and our students and staff receive national and international awards and recognition for their accomplishments. Each year, our graduates are accepted into the top colleges and universities in the nation, including Ivy League schools and military academies.

Our facilities are designed to enhance learning at all levels. Most of our schools were recently renovated and updated to not only incorporate state-of-the art computer science and technology labs and classrooms, but to make better use of educational space and increase the safety and security of our students and staff. Additionally, a brand-new Kerr Elementary School opened in the fall of 2019.

For more detailed information about our school district, our programs, or any of our individual schools, please contact our communications office at (412) 967-2410. After you read about our district, we invite you to see for yourself what makes the Fox Chapel Area School District award-winning and a special place to live!
