What We Do
Focus Collegiate supports college students with unique 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 promote student success both in the classroom and beyond.
Who We Serve
Our students are enrolled in their college of choice. We serve students on ANY campus through Collegiate Virtual and in-person if they attend a Boston or Eastern Massachusetts area college. Many have unique learning profiles, or are simply struggling to meet the demands of college. Most of our students benefited from academic or life balance support in the past, and are open to collaborating with our team to transition to college and life in a meaningful way.
How We Do It
Relationships matter. Focus Collegiate employs strategies to integrate and engage students on their campus quickly, so they don’t get behind. We work in the areas of academic independence, social integration, life balance, and motivation to improve students’ overall executive functioning. We also leverage our relationships with campus professionals and other stakeholders working with our students.
What You Should Know
The offices and college services that coordinate accommodations for students with learning disabilities are well-intentioned, but have a very narrow focus. For students that have gaps, but no documentation, they are left to fend for themselves or vie for limited availability. Campus support services are often overwhelmed, which can make them unresponsive in the moment, when it counts most for our students. This is where Focus Collegiate is essential.
