ADHD Boarding School
The Academy at SOAR is an ADHD boarding school that also serves students with other learning disabilities through adventure-based learning. We recognize that each student has unique abilities, experiences, needs and individual learning style. Providing each student with differentiated instruction allows us to customize the learning environment and deliver academic instruction in a way that meets the individual needs and abilities of each student. For example, if your child is an auditory learner, information will be presented verbally, whereas visual learners are provided with primarily written components.
Many students have experienced difficulty in a traditional academic setting, stemming from a variety of factors including but not limited to, ADHD / ADD, other Learning Disabilities, negative feedback from peers or teachers, inability to self-advocate, peer influences, and poor academic performance. We seek to modify the student’s perception of him or herself as a student through differentiated instruction, allowing them to become aware of their unique strengths, abilities, and challenges, along with techniques to overcome academic hurdles.
The Academy at SOAR is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS). Upon completion, your child will receive a high school diploma. Should your child complete one or multiple semesters, they will receive full academic credit for the courses they complete. Prior to attending the Academy at SOAR, we will carefully examine your child’s academic progress with you and his or her educators to determine the appropriate course load for each student based on their academic needs.
We are proud to be recognized by the AdvancedED commission as a SACS-CASI accredited boarding school. Read our Press Release.
The Academy Experience
“Being parents of a child with an alternate learning style can be frustrating for both parent and child. It is difficult to watch your child struggle in a world where there is minimal understanding of the problem. The Academy at SOAR has been an answer to our search for understanding and education for our child. The staff revitalized him and created a learning environment that celebrates uniqueness, improves self-confidence, and teaches students they can overcome any obstacles they encounter.”
