The health, safety, and well-being of our students, their families, and our staff is paramount. As universities cancel in-person classes, move to remote learning, and direct their students to return home in response to the threat of Coronavirus (COVID-19), we have moved all of our support services to full online delivery until further notice.
We will be opening our services to students and their families not only in our current support area, but to engaged students outside of our region as well. Learn more.
What We Do
Focus Collegiate supports college students with complex learning profiles in the areas of academics, executive functioning, life-skills, and social integration while they are on campus. We help students transition to independence using the college experience as a launching pad. We aim to ensure student success both in the classroom and in life.
Who We Serve
Our students are generally accepted to their Boston area college or university of choice. 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 on-campus professionals and 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 makes them unresponsive in the moment, when it counts for some students. This is where Focus Collegiate comes in to help. We support the essential life skills, executive function, and social integration activities and the roles they play in academic success.
