Student Parking

Our parking application process will remain entirely digital.  You only need to pick up your hang-tag in person once all steps are complete - there will be no forms to hand in.  We do require families to complete the application together - student and parent or guardian.  Our process is designed to ensure accuracy and understanding of Lake Braddcok's Safety and Security Department parking policies.

Stay tuned for the online application process for the 2023 -2024 school year to open in August to all eligible students.

Parking on School Grounds is a Privilege

Parking on campus is a privilege and not a right. It is not guaranteed. It is based on space availability as determined by FCPS and the on-site Safety and Security Specialist.

Students wishing to park on campus during school hours are required to have an FCPS-issued hang-tag. Parking without a hang-tag obtained as described is prohibited, as is parking at other private and professional business lots in the surrounding areas. Local businesses do ticket and tow violating vehicles at the owner's expense. The Lake Braddock Security Specialist and Administrative Staff reserve the right to deny any student the privilege of parking on school grounds. Assigned hang-tags and the privilege to park on campus, can be revoked for any reason and will be revoked for a minimum of two weeks when directly related to SR&R and Virginia State Traffic Code violations such as but not limited to, leaving school grounds, transporting students without proper authorization, reckless driving.

We cannot process applications for students who do not currently have a valid driver’s license. Applications however are accepted through June 2023 for those who obtain their license throughout the school year.

Parking Fees

Stay tuned for 2023-24 parking fees.

If you are a student who is free or reduced lunch eligible for the current school year, upon verification of your status, parking fees are available to you at a reduced rate. You will be asked to verify your status (stay tuned for details).  Once verified, you will be emailed the appropriate payment link. DO NOT make a payment until you have received that email. Any other payments, once submitted, cannot and will not be refunded per FCPS policy.

Academy Students

Academy students needing to travel from one campus to another are expected to utilize the Academy shuttle bus. Academy students wanting to park on campus and have a valid need to drive to their academy locations must complete the application process. If approved, students will then need to contact their Academy to receive instructions on how to apply for parking on their campus and then receive approval. Approvals from both the Academy and Lake Braddock are required in order to drive to academies. At no time is transporting other students to the academy authorized or allowed. Doing so will result in the loss of parking privileges at Lake Braddock.  


Many student and parent/guardian questions and answers can be found below. For anything not addressed, please contact Gus Cabrera, Safety & Security Specialist.
