We are thrilled that your Journey to Success includes the Academy at SOAR!

Once you are enrolled in the Academy at SOAR, this Parent Resources page will help you navigate the next steps. Haven’t enrolled yet? Request more information or begin your application!

1) START HERE:

Academic Calendar
Important Dates to Remember

2) SUBMIT REQUIRED PAPERWORK:

Once you have been accepted, you will receive a confirmation email from our Registrar with the required steps to complete your Enrollment Packet.

3) SCHEDULE TRAVEL AND ARRIVAL:

Contact our Registrar, Twila Campbell at 828-456-3435 to schedule your arrival time and inbrief period.

What is an inbrief? This is a time where you will meet face to face with the Academy Instructors and Teachers to discuss your student’s strengths, goals for the program, Academic learning style, and to set expectations for the program. This time is critical to ensuring everyone is on the same page and working toward the same goals. During this time, we will also discuss medication and any other specifics necessary.

4) SUBMIT FINAL PAYMENT:

Final payment is due prior to the start of the program. All payments can be made through your Parent Portal account in RenWeb. Read more about our Financial Policies here.

Tuition may be tax deductible. Although we are not a therapeutic program, we do address special needs education, and as such may be considered a medical expense tax deduction.  Tax rules allow medical deductions for “diagnosis, cure, mitigation, or treatment…primarily to alleviate or prevent a physical or mental defect or illness” (IRS publication 502). Contact your health care provider and tax professional for more information on whether or not this deduction is appropriate for you.

 


Success Stories

"I want to also thank you and all of Soar staff for helping Kelsey progress in her processing deficiencies, social interactions, and helping her learn how to advocate for herself in the classroom and outside of the classroom as well! Each time that I get to talk with her she seems extremely happy. When I took her home for the fall weekend, she talked nonstop the whole way home and then added more things throughout the weekend!!!! I am so glad we chose to enroll her in SOAR!"
