Our Students

Unique challenges, unique solutions.

Focus Academy serves students with educational designations including:

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
  • Intellectually Disabled (IND)
  • Specific Learning Disabled (SLD)
  • Language Impaired (LI)

Prospective students should have an active Transitional Individual Educational Plan (T/IEP), be independently functioning, and not require the services of a one-on-one aide. Students are carefully evaluated and placed according to their social/emotional and academic levels. 

Focus Academy serves students ages 14 through 22, to extend the timetable for students to transition.  Life skills and "next steps" are highlighted throughout the high school curriculum, complimenting the Transition Program for students that have graduated.

The Transition Program extends and applies the Focus Academy concepts to honing comprehensive life skills and moving students into the workplace through volunteer internships with community partners.
