Opportunities to continue to work on these all important life skills are infused into all learning, training and internship opportunities
Focus Academy relies on the latest educational research related to how adolescents and young adults learn best, in determining optimal student scheduling. As a result, our school day begins at 8:45 a.m. and ends at 3:45 p.m. Brain breaks are incorporated throughout the day.
An emphasis on moving toward independence is a fundamental objective of the Focus Academy program and begins on the very first day of school.
