Welcome to Fauquier High School

History


In the early 1960's, the School Board decided to have a consolidated high school for Fauquier County. Fauquier High School opened in 1963. The year before, there were three Caucasian high schools in Fauquier County, a part of the practice of racial segregation to which FCPS subscribed in those days. They were Marshall High School (known for basketball prowess), Warrenton High School (known for football prowess) and Cedar Lee High School (known for baseball prowess). Prospective students from those three high schools voted on school colors for FHS - red, white and gray - and on the mascot - the Falcon.

Fauquier High School, one of the three high schools in Fauquier County, opened in 1963 and is located just outside the town limits of Warrenton VA. The high school serves students in grades 9 - 12 and offers a full range of studies from introductory to Advanced Placement courses. Vocational Education is offered in Agriculture, Business, Marketing, Family and Consumer Science, Technology, Trade and Industries, and Fire Science.
