Thank you for your interest in Focus Academy.

As a tuition-free public charter school, Focus Academy is required to hold an open enrollment period for the upcoming school year, however applications are continuously accepted for any open seats in our program. We look forward to hearing from you!

Our admissions process includes submission of the application and IEP (individual educational plan), followed by a personal interview with parent and student. All required documents must be submitted for an application to be considered complete.

Admissions Eligibility & Requirements

To be eligible to attend Focus Academy, students must meet the following criteria:

  • Have a current IEP (individual educational plan) or be eligible for an IEP

A determination of acceptance will be communicated within 10 days after the in-person interview.
