Coursera Career Academy Student Pilot Program

Coursera Career Academy Student Pilot Program

The FCPS Student Pilot Program with Coursera is open for registration. The program is sponsored by our Department of Information Technology. It allows up to 1,000 FCPS high school students to access the full contents of the Coursera Career Academy, which offers more than 29 professional certificates from the world’s leading companies.  

Through the program, students can explore popular digital jobs and career paths from marketing to data science, and learn from experts at leading companies, including Google. 

Interested students should complete the Coursera Student Interest Form. Once it is submitted, their parent/guardian will be contacted for consent.  

Please Note: Coursera courses are not recognized by the Virginia Department of Education as industry credentials and do not count toward high school graduation requirements. The pilot program has a limited number of licenses which are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

If you have any questions, please contact Program Manager Scott Simmons at @email.
