Central Florida Preparatory School

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

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.
