Civic Seal

The Kentucky Civic Seal program recognizes Kentucky students at all levels (elementary, middle, and high schoolers) who demonstrate exceptional civic performance through exhibiting their understanding, application, and reflection upon: local, state, and national governance; commitment to democratic principles and promoting the common good; informed participation in civic spaces; and reflection upon their role in modern civic life. The seal may be earned at each of the three grade-band commencements.

Earning the seal extends the strong civic emphasis within the current Kentucky Academic Standards for Social Studies. Whereas the standards’ emphasis on civic application of learning provides a foundation, the seal program is an opportunity for students to go above-and-beyond in demonstrating good citizenship.​
