About CFP

Shaping the future one student at a time…

Central Florida Prep is a non-profit private secular school providing instruction from Pre-K through grade twelve.
 
Our curriculum builds proficiency in higher order thinking skill, literacy, technology and computational and theoretical process, while nurturing artistic, physical and interpersonal development. CFP’s diverse student body fosters a broad understanding of the world in which we live and aids in the development of cooperative skills.
 
We seek to teach our students computer uses and applications as tools for research, problem solving, design and communication. It is our goal to send our students into this rapidly changing world prepared and enthusiastic for the technological changes to come in their lifetimes.
 
At CFP, we believe that our goal to educate our students is best carried our in an environment of mutual trust and caring where students are given the necessary tools, guidance and opportunities to develop independence and self-reliance. We believe that, to be complete, the sense of family fostered on our campus must include parents, and to that end we maintain effective and frequent oral and written communications and an “open door” policy. Central Florida Prep shares the responsibility with the parent for instilling positive values and a love of learning.
 
At CFP, we accomplish this by providing a low student/teacher ratio, which allows a teacher to better understand how each student learns. Our small class sizes allow our teachers to individualize lesson plans, be more responsive to students’ needs, and to continually challenge them academically. Our goal is to ignite the full academic potential of every student.
 

Mission:

Central Florida Prep seeks to provide every student with an opportunity to optimize his or her academic potential, to develop a positive self-image, and to encourage a life-long desire for learning.
 
Founded in 1990 by Bob Flanders, Central Florida Preparatory School is a non-profit private secular school providing instruction from Pre-K through grade 12 and designed for students of average to above average ability.
 
Central Florida Preparatory School admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.

 

Philosophy:

Central Florida Preparatory School believes that to effectively optimize a child’s academic potential, a school must provide a learning environment that incorporates a variety of learning techniques while accommodating individual learning styles.
 
At CFP, we accomplish this by providing a low student/teacher ratio which allows a teacher to better understand how each student learns. Our small class sizes allow our teachers to individualize lesson plans, be more responsive to students’ needs, and to continually challenge them academically. By approaching education in this manner, a student experiences success and develops a strong self image regarding his/her academic ability. When children experience success and feel good about their learning environment, they develop a positive attitude that remains with them for life.
 

Accreditations:

A Fully Accredited Gold Seal School, AISF; SACS; Advanc/ED; NCPSA; Accreditation International

The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS) and the Association of Independent Schools of Florida (AISF), through Advanc/ED, have defined shared, research-based accreditation standards that cross state, regional, and national boundaries. Accompanying these standards is a unified, clear and powerful accreditation process designed to help focus schools on a continuous process of improvement, providing external checks, support, and feedback to help schools continuously improve.
 
Through a self-study and documentation process a school defines itself in terms of strengths and areas that need improvement and validates that the school meets high standards of educational excellence.
 
However, the real value resides in the good things that happen to the school as it achieves and maintains accreditation. The self-study process is one of discovery and empowerment. The school’s 5-year self-study examines itself in light of its own philosophy, involving all its constituents. It results in strong self-evaluation and a strategic plan that fosters continuing school improvement. The State of Florida has awarded us its Gold Seal of approval, recognizing our achievement in providing a level of care that exceeds the minimum licensing standards by meeting the higher standards set by the approved accrediting agencies.
