A place for your teen to thrive.

At New Focus Academy (NFA), we believe that all teenagers deserve the opportunity to lead fulfilling and independent lives. NFA is an Autism Support Center providing specialized academics and clinical interventions to promote learning and growth for adolescents ages 12 to 18 who are struggling with social and functional challenges. Many of these students have Autistic minds, or other neurodivergent perspectives, affecting how they learn and understand the world around them.

With decades of experience and evidence-based methods, we offer immersive experiential activities and a close-knit community where students can develop the necessary skills to live independently. We prioritize emotional and social growth while teaching valuable life skills that empower our students to thrive. Join us at New Focus Academy, and let’s help your teen reach their full potential.


Education & Experiential Learning

At our autism school, students’ unique learning abilities are addressed through individualized education programs. As students work towards graduation, they also learn valuable life and vocational skills preparing them for employment.

Individualized Therapy & Coaching

Treatment addresses each student’s specific needs through goals, objectives, and positive feedback. The coaching team provides support and guidance in a variety of therapeutic settings.

Social Development Groups

New Focus is a small community designed to help students feel comfortable in social settings and not feel overwhelmed. Students develop appropriate social skills and practice them through experiential activities.

Physical Health & Recreation

Students participate in daily fitness and outdoor recreation activities to promote well-being. Engaging Recreation Therapy experiences teach students to develop a positive, fulfilling leisure lifestyle.

Learning Life Skills

Our students learn important life skills, such as being actively involved in meals. They learn budgeting, planning, preparing, and clean-up, which empowers them to take an active role in nutritional choices.

Focus on Principles, Not Rules

Rules are meaningless without an understanding of the principles behind them. Rather than teaching rules, we focus on helping students understand Our Six Core Values and how they can apply them in their everyday life.


You may be stressed and feel like it’s a dead end, but your family has options. Your teenager is capable of being independent and living a full, happy life. We’re ready to help your family move forward.
