Please join us in welcoming the UCF (University of Central Florida) Center for Community Schools as our newest addition to the Learning Circle community!

The Center leads the state-wide development of the Community Partnership Schools™ model in Florida. It is a sustainable and comprehensive model consisting of four core community partnerships — a school district, university or college, community-based nonprofit, and healthcare provider – working together to provide long-term academic support, enrichment opportunities, and comprehensive healthcare for the students, students’ families, and the surrounding community. Its community partnerships bring many of the resources that are lacking right to campus, where students are able to get nutritious meals, mental health care, dental care and more. Each Community Partnership School is also equipped with dedicated staff positions to ensure sustainability and fidelity of the model.

We are grateful for the opportunity to support the Community Partnership Schools in Florida! Click here to learn more about the UCF Center for Community Schools.
