Where students with Autism achieve their highest potential.
Follow the steps below to apply.
Step 1 – Complete and Submit the following paperwork:
Hillsborough County Transferring Students:
Out-of-County or Out-of-State Transferring Students:
*These documents can be obtained by calling your child’s school/district.
These items can be sent via email or mail to:
Florida Autism Center of Excellence (FACE)
Attn: Enrollment Team
6310 East Sligh Ave.
Tampa, FL 33617
Step 2 – FACE will review the IEP to determine eligibility and class placement based on the student’s age and needs. Please allow at least one (1) week to hear if your child has been accepted to the school.
Step 3 – If your child is accepted and there is an opening in the appropriate class, FACE will notify you and schedule a tour. FACE offers tours by appointment only to prospective students and families on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 10:00-1:00. Tours may be scheduled by calling 813-985-3223 or by stopping in at the FACE office. If your child is eligible, but there is not a classroom opening, FACE will notify you and place your child on a wait list.
Step 4 – Once a student is accepted, his or her legal parent(s) or guardian(s) must fill out and complete the student registration forms. FACE administrators will then review the documents and contact parents to arrange a start date.
