FORWARD, ONWARD TO COLLEGE, UPWARD TO SUCCESS
FOCUS is an out-of-school-time, tuition-free enrichment programme aimed at preparing public school students of demonstrated potential and need for college readiness and access. Students begin the programme the summer after Grade 4, and are supported throughout their school career. Our expectation is that they will eventually become the first generation in their family to achieve post-secondary education.
FOCUS also supports teachers in training. The majority of interns are University of The Bahamas (UB), School of Education majors, who will eventually be teaching in the country’s public school system.
