Secondary Options for Achievement Resulting in Success (SOARS)

SOARS is an alternative education program run by the Thompson R2-J School District.

It caters to students who have chosen not to pursue their education at a regular high school within the District.

The program works best with juniors and seniors, and older students who are more mature and disciplined.

Transportation is important because attendance is required. Learning is conducted using online software and is

driven by the student. The Program is accessed in our two computer labs. Although teachers are there for support,

students need to be motivated to work. 

Goals of the SOARS Program

  • To provide an alternative educational setting for students who choose not to return to their home high schools.  

  • To provide students with an opportunity to repeat classes they failed in the traditional setting, or take new classes.
