The Academy at SOAR
The Academy at SOAR is an accredited private boarding school in the mountains of North Carolina for 7 – 12 graders. Our Academy is specially designed for students with ADHD and other learning challenges. Our unique teaching approach combines differentiated instruction in a small classroom setting with twoweek experiential education expeditions. During their travels, school work is tailored to incorporate lessons based on their various locations. In addition to academic learning, our students gain essential social and life skills to help them become more successful individuals in and out of the classroom.
GAP Year at SOAR
The GAP Year at SOAR is designed for young adults that have graduated from High School or obtained their GED. We strive to empower our participants through travel, college classes, and volunteering. They discover their talents, increase their self-reliance, and experience life-changing adventures while preparing for their future. The GAP Year encourages participants to pursue new and existing interests and strengths, develop social skills via communal living, increase life skills through expedition planning and exploring the Western USA, and practice independent living in a small group setting. Participants alternate between residential campus phases and expeditions.
