1 in every 59 American children are affected by Autism Spectrum Disorders. Specialized educational programs like FACE provide essential quality services and programs to this population of children. FACE is one of only four public schools in the state catering to this tremendous need. FACE currently serves 140+ students. We’re ready for more growth and willing to fill more needs, but there is a constantly growing gap between the rising cost of providing services and the resources we currently have.

Now in existence for over 10 years, Florida Autism Center for Excellence (FACE), a Tampa-based public charter school, serves over 140 students on the autism spectrum. Our mission at FACE is to educate students with autism to achieve their highest potential. The school operates as a 501(c)(3) and provides relief to parents and students who have been unsuccessful in traditional schools by providing an intensive and specialized program.
A driving force behind the success of our program is the distinctive setting we provide to our students. As you know, FACE is a public charter school that receives a portion of our funding from the state. Being a charter school allows us the autonomy to provide a program specialized in Applied Behavior Analysis to students with autism. However, in exchange for that freedom, charter schools do not receive the same amount of funding as a district run school. Therefore, we need to rely on fundraising efforts to pick up the deficit and enable us to continue to provide a program of excellence for our students.
Fundraising is key in order to meet the unique needs of our students. Only with the support of our community can we begin to bridge that gap. If you’d like to make a contribution to FACE, please email.
