What We Do

Focus Collegiate supports college students with complex learning profiles in the areas of academic independence, executive functioning, life balance, motivation & decision-making and social integration while they are on campus or virtually. We help students transition to independence using their college experience as a metaphor for life. We ensure student success both in the classroom and beyond.

Who We Serve

Our students are generally accepted to their Boston-area college for our in-person services or their university of choice throughout the country for Collegiate Virtual. Many have complex diagnostic characteristics, learning differences, or are simply struggling to meet the demands of college. Most of our students have received essential services in the past and are unclear that a transition to the college or university campus will be successful without additional support.

How We Do It

Focus Collegiate employs strategies to integrate and engage students on their campus quickly, so they don’t get behind. We create a collaborative working environment to monitor and support student progress in their identified areas of focus. We also leverage our relationships with campus professionals and additional collateral services.

What You Should Know

The offices and college programs that coordinate accommodations for students with documented disabilities are well-intentioned, but often in very high demand. Campus services also adhere to strict schedules to meet this need, which can make them unresponsive in the moment, when it counts most for our students. This is where Focus Collegiate comes in to help. We support the essential areas of student focus and activities in our five domains and the role they play in successful transition to college.
