Students On the Academic Rise (SOAR) High School provides a supportive, flexible, and academically enriched environment with an emphasis in mathematics, science, and engineering for underrepresented students who may be high potential but low performing in the traditional educational system. SOAR High School is designed to promote academic achievement, social maturity, and enhanced economic opportunities through the completion of high school and success in college. SOAR High School embraces the Core Principles of the Early College High School (ECHS) Initiative, including improving the graduation rates by creating a flexible high school year, by compressing the number of years to complete a college degree and removing financial and other barriers to college.
SOAR Stars are life-long learners and self-advocates who solve the most pressing challenges through an unwavering pursuit of knowledge, innovation, and collaboration, becoming engaged and productive leaders in their communities.
