SOAR provides ACT preparation, admissions and college success information, and an introduction to Multicultural Student Services. In addition to college and academic preparation, students are exposed to BYU campus, its community, and opportunities. SOAR students are assigned a BYU student-counselor who serves as their mentor through the program. The cost for SOAR, which includes housing, food, activities, and materials, is minimal, and need-based scholarships are available.
