The FOCUS Program at Brother Rice is designed to meet the needs of particular students who may experience difficulties in competing in and completing academic high school programs.
FOCUS involves two years of FOCUS courses taught by select teachers. Beginning with junior year, the students are partially mainstreamed into general courses while complete immersion takes place during senior year. Students are reevaluated annually to determine their placement in the next academic year.
The curriculum is based upon the requirements needed for college entrance. The Guidance Department works closely with the FOCUS Program, especially as students make decisions about their future education,
