UCP Charter Schools are a consortium of inclusive Charter Schools operated by UCP of Central Florida. UCP of Central Florida is a non-profit organization under 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code since 1955.
The mission of the UCP Charter School is to create a fully inclusive learning community where all students, parents, and professionals appreciate and value diversity in all forms. Students are educated to become conscientious, responsible citizens, whereby they assume the role of life-long learners as they reflect upon and contribute to the cultural and civic life of the community. UCP’s board and team members envision a day when all people are measured by the potential of what they can do rather than by what they cannot. A world where people with and without disabilities learn, work and play together – where each person can excel without limitations.
Students at UCP Charters School are supported to achieve high standards in both their academic and personal development through a research-based educational program utilizing arts and technology integration and project-based curriculum integration approaches. The educational program is carefully designed to engage students in hands-on problem solving activities at levels appropriate to their unique needs.
UCP Charter Schools are accredited through AdvancEd (formerly SACS).
As a public Charter School, UCP of Central Florida is legally required to have an all-volunteer board of directors. Charter schools, as public schools, serve the community and do not operate for any individual’s personal gain and they are eligible for special treatment, such as tax exemptions. The charter school is required to have a governing board to ensure that its operations continue to focus on serving the public.
The volunteer Charter School board of directors provides feedback and suggestions to assist in the success of the Charter School programs of UCP of Central Florida.
The Charter School board seeks to represent the diverse Charter Schools it serves with representation from parents from each of the UCP Charter School campuses. Additionally, members of the community with education and programmatic expertise are invited to participate.
