The community-based experience for our families is unique in Central Florida as our schools are very small in comparison to traditional schools. By placing instruction in a community setting, it can become part of every child’s complete school experience, instead of a task. It mirrors a real-world model, where knowledge and innovation happen through engaging in the world, collaborating with our colleagues and leaning into things we don’t know.

At our campuses learning and socializing are not mutually exclusive, much like the real world, community learning is how the greatest ideas and most permanent lessons are discovered. 

Our faculty, staff and team at UCP Charter Schools exceed staffing instructional support ratios in classrooms. Our education team has training that goes above and beyond a traditional school setting. They are committed to rigorous instruction and are passionate about empowering students in their learning.

 

When learning happens communally, it is no longer solitary, boring or stressful but rather a practical exchange of knowledge and instruction.
