Students Occupationally and Academically Ready (SOAR)
SOAR (Students Occupationally and Academically Ready) is a career and technical educational plan that prepares students for college and careers through articulation with the Pennsylvania Department of Education and local Career and Technology Centers (CTC).
Students who have completed their program of study at a CTC with a minimum 2.5 cumulative grade point average are eligible for college credit up to three years after graduating from high school. Students interested in this program are encouraged to work with their CTC teachers to complete the official Program of Study (POS) paperwork.
The SOAR logo on an academic program page indicates that the college offers to award free college credit for that program to qualifying graduates who have submitted all required documentation. More information on SOAR can be found in the College Catalog and the PDE website.
