Antelope Valley School District

Welcome to SOAR High School

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.

AVUHSD Invest in Technology to Support Blended Learning

As we anticipate the return of students to our classrooms, we are investing in technology that will allow all families, regardless of whether your student continues to learn at home or return to school (when possible), to access engaging and dynamic lessons developed and delivered by the classroom teacher.  We have partnered with Promethean since 2008 with a number of devices on each campus and are thrilled to expand this tool to every classroom in our schools!
