Student Spotlight

Meet Deanna !

"I like the SOAR program because the teachers, work studies, and staff here are very nice and have a great sense of humor."


SOAR is a collaborative program of Marywood University and the Northeastern Educational Intermediate Unit. The NEIU supports local school districts in educating students through collaboration and innovation. Classes for SOAR students are taught by NEIU instructors.
