Still want to go away to college this fall? It’s not too late!

We are happy to announce that we have partnered with the International Guest House to provide an alternative housing option for Focus Collegiate students. The International Guest House is an independent dorm conveniently located in the middle of Boston in the Back Bay on Beacon Street. 

It’s not too late to explore college attendance in Boston without committing to full-time enrollment. Students who choose IGH housing will have the opportunity to test the college waters as a non-matriculating student. 

The IGH is perfect for Focus Collegiate students who:

  • Want to see if college is a good fit
  • Need more time/flexibility
  • Want to work at their own pace
  • Are ready to gain real-world, hands-on experience 
  • Need more freedom than home and more structure than life on-campus 
  • Are undecided about where they want to attend
  • Missed the application date or have had other college plans fall through

The IGH offers shared and single rooms with beds, linens, dressers, desks, and air conditioners and free Internet access. There are also laundry facilities available in the building. The residence includes 14 buffet-style meals per week.

IGH also has a quiet study area and a comfortable media room with a soda machine, a snack machine, and couches. The residence has its own on-site staff and 24-hour security. Visitors are not allowed between 9:00pm – 9:00am. No overnight guests are permitted.

Start your college journey in a safe, vibrant community of students at IGH with the support of Focus Collegiate. Contact us for more information and to book accommodations.  

Our students can still enroll with: 

  • Boston University
  • Northeastern University
  • Harvard University
  • New England College of Business
  • New England Conservatory
  • MassArt
  • Urban College of Boston
  • Boston Area Community Colleges

Our program is now available in the greater Boston area!

Focus Collegiate provides innovative hands-on coaching for college students with learning differences, on campus and beyond.
