About Focus Point Academy

The Focus Point Academy is a cooperative effort staffed and funded by the Pasadena Unified School District, the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health, and Pacific Clinics.  

Educational and clinical staffs work as a team to provide students with skills in socialization, problem resolution, and work closely with parents and families.

Academics and Treatment

The Focus Point Academy provides students with the behavioral skills necessary to access academic curriculum and successfully transition to a mainstream campus or a less restrictive educational program within 18 months to two years.   Students have access to core curriculum and individualized educational programs. Enrollment is limited to approximately 50 students.

Seven special day classes are taught by credentialed teachers, with a maximum of eight students per classroom and a 3:1 ratio of students to staff.
