UCP of Central Florida Exceeds National Average During Recent COGNIA Accreditation

UCP of Central Florida Charter Schools earned its five-year accreditation renewal in June with Cognia (formerly known as Advanced Ed). The components evaluated included Leadership Capacity, Learning Capacity, and Resource Capacity and UCP exceeded the Cognia Improvement Network (CIN) five-year national average, overall, in the accreditation evaluation score.

“Here at UCP we focus on a continuous improvement process for teaching, learning, and leading,” said Anna O’Connor-Morin, Senior Director of Education for UCP.

“We are especially proud to share that our score was five points above the national average. Our team worked really hard to build on our strengths as a charter school system for children of all abilities and to meet our ongoing improvement goals,” said O’Connor-Morin.

Using a set of rigorous research-based standards, the Cognia Accreditation Process examines the whole institution— the program, the cultural context, and the community of stakeholders—to determine how well the parts work together to meet the needs of learners.

According to their website, Cognia works with schools and systems of all types and sizes globally. Cognia provides a clear set of standards and criteria for accreditation and certification and when schools are able to meet those standards, the results are recognized with a seal of educational quality that is acknowledged worldwide.

The mission of UCP is to empower children with and without disabilities to achieve their potential by providing individualized support, education and therapy services in an inclusive environment.
