SOAR
 
Project SOAR
Secondary Options for Academic Recovery

Project SOAR is an after school program designed to provide an alternate instructional setting for general and special education high school students who currently are on home instruction or experiencing academic failure thereby presenting a drop out risk and/or alternate placement needed due to school avoidance, anxiety, depression or other emotional/social concerns that prohibit these students from attending a traditional high school setting. 

About Project SOAR

To Qualify for Project SOAR, a student must be recommended by administration, parent/student request to administration or guidance, I&RS action plans, or a CST referral. The referral form must be submitted by a school counselor or a CST member to the SOAR Intake Committee for consideration and potential approval. 

Once a student is enrolled into Project SOAR, the SOAR staff will enroll the student in appropriate online instruction through New jersey Virtual School (NJVS). SOAR staff will monitor attendance, participation, and the provisions of support services. Through NJVS, students work at their own paces and they are provided with a chart of assignments to be completed for each course. Online teachers grade the assignments and provide feedback to the students. Grades, progress, and the time spent on each activity can be viewed by students, parents, and SOAR staff. 

**Transportation may be available through arrangement. 


Program Options through NJVS

Students may not need the full complement of services and can be accepted into the program for one aspect only. Students may be selected for participation in this program due to the following needs: 
  • Credit Recovery - recover credit for a failing course/courses. 
  • Academic Support - individualized academic assistance offered by fully certified teachers
  • Full Academic Credit - full year course credit for nontraditional students
  • Elective Course Options - half year course credit
  • *Counseling - daily opportunities for group/individualized counseling.
