Central Florida Preparatory School

1450 Citrus Oaks Ave
Gotha, FL 34734-0347
Tel: (407)290-8073
Grades: PK-12 | 217 students
Central Florida Preparatory School seeks to provide every student with an opportunity to optimize their academic potential, to develop a positive self-image, and to encourage a life-long desire for learning.
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.

School Reviews

I feel very fortunate to have found this school for my daughter. Mrs. Pierson's and Mrs. Claudia's Montessori classroom is excellent. In addition to getting a superb education, my daughter and her classmates/friends are been loved, nurtured and most importantly, there is a continuation of the values taught at home; to be kind and respectful of others. Mrs. Pierson's and Mrs. Claudia's love for teaching, shows on every aspect of our interaction. I like the constant communication through the portal and via text message. CFP also offers great enrichment programs. Coach Socca does an excellent job with the soccer program. Some of the enrichment programs my daughter has enjoyed are Zumba, Yoga, Violin Class, Art and Crafts and Ballet/Tap class. The aftercare supervisor, Mrs. Cook and the assistant, Ms. Taylor are wonderful with the kids. My family also enjoys the extracurricular activities the school organizes throughout the year.

My children has been with Central FL Prep (CFP) for years. I am very happy with their curriculum, staff and approach to education. Over the past several years, CFP has improved it's offering. Now they include a digital platform, laptops for every student, an extensive Science Program and Project Lead the Way. My children love CFP and so do I!

We have loved our CFP family since 2010 and both my children are incredibly happy there. Academically they are blossoming; both excel in reading and math. But what I love most as a parent raising children to navigate in an ever changing world is that a love for learning is being instilled not just the act of learning! I also love that the parents may be involved at any level both academically and socially and can be a part of how my children grow. The digital, STEM and art curriculum are just as fantastic as the very competent and caring staff!

Our family loves this school! My daughter is blossoming academically because of the small class sizes. We love the fact she gets a lot more individual attention than a public school classroom. We also like the digital curriculum format. CFP has a family vibe to it that makes me appreciate the teachers and staff more. I know my daughter is in a safe place, and that everyone truly cares about her here!

I am VERY happy with the overall program at CFP. My child has been encouraged to play sports and join the National Honor Society. It is a small environment with a big school attitude. Parents are welcome to be involved. I think my daughter is loving the new Digital Media program. This was the best choice we made to bring our child to this private school.
