All UCP Charter Schools are accredited by AdvancED (formerly SACS). AdvancED is the largest community of education professionals in the world. They are a non-partisan organization that conducts rigorous, on-site reviews of a variety of educational institutions and systems to ensure that all learners realize their full potential. An AdvancED External Review Team visited UCP of Central Florida, Inc. and its schools in 2016. Six of our seven schools also have an Early Learning component and were reviewed using the AdvancED Standards for Quality Early Learning Schools. All met or exceeded the requirements. At least 80 percent criteria are required to be met, including the nine Required Criteria.
UCP Charter Schools, including the PreK Program, are also considered a Gold Seal Quality Care Program by the Department of Children and Families (DCF). The Florida Legislature established the Gold Seal Quality Care program to acknowledge child care/PreK programs that are accredited by recognized agencies and whose standards reflect quality in the level of care and supervision provided to children.
