Students On-Campus Achieving Results (SOAR) was founded by Marywood University and the Northeastern Educational Intermediate Unit (NEIU) in 2008. The first program of its kind, SOAR provides an age-appropriate environment in which high-school age students with Autism Spectrum Disorder can prepare for competitive employment and learn to live independently.
SOAR students spend half of their day at Marywood in classes taught by NEIU teachers. Instruction focuses on independent living, communication, life skills, and career education.
The rest of the day is spent in vocational placements that pair students with Marywood staff. SOAR students work in housekeeping, food services, maintenance, the library, information technology, grounds keeping, and the print shop.
