To create a learning environment where academic success is expected and achieved
To provide our students with rich and varied opportunities for individual development; social interaction and connection; relationship building and social emotional growth
To teach students necessary skills that enable them to move beyond the classroom and serve as active members of their community
To prepare students to live the most independent and purposeful lives possible
Focus Academy is a Florida Public Charter School and Transition Program offering a modified Exceptional Student Education (ESE) curriculum and unique therapeutic supports for students with cognitive and/or developmental disabilities in grades 6-12 and beyond.
Focus Academy envisions a public school in which all students with cognitive and/or developmental disabilities have the same opportunities and support as their peers to embrace a strong education for their future. Focus Academy is a safe place for students to enhance the quality of their lives by experiencing a unique environment with strong social-emotional and therapeutic support. This integration of classroom curriculum and direct support creates a place where Education Meets Life.
