We need your perspective as we develop our Portrait of a Graduate, a collective vision that articulates our community’s aspirations for every student in Columbus.
What are the skills and mindsets that our children need to succeed in this rapidly changing and complex world?
Our Portrait of a Graduate will be our North Star, bringing our community together with a shared vision.
Open to all Columbus community members. Come with friends, family, and colleagues!

CCS is partnering with Battelle for Kids to develop its Portrait of a Graduate, which will serve as the shared educational vision for CCS and the Columbus community. The CCS Portrait Design Team will lead the visioning process and will be informed through the Community Conversations. This team is comprised of more than 150 internal and external stakeholders, which includes families, students, teachers, administrators, staff, and partners.
