Once you have been accepted, you will receive a confirmation email from our Registrar with the required steps to create a ParentsWeb account and complete your Enrollment Packet. Once you have begun your Enrollment Packet you can access it by logging in to ParentsWeb here.

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 ParentsWeb 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

“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.”
