Community Partnership Schools™ Model

The UCF Center for Community Schools promotes the development of community partnerships that include four core partners — a school district, a university or college, a community-based nonprofit, and a healthcare provider, as well as others. This approach is named the Community Partnership Schools™ model.

The partners work together to provide a community school with a wide variety of academic support and enrichment opportunities as well as primary medical, dental and behavioral healthcare for the students, the students’ families and the surrounding community.

The center oversees a rigorous, strengths-based certification process to ensure best practices at Community Partnership Schools. Currently, there are two UCF-Certified Community Partnership Schools in Florida, with many others seeking certification.
