SOAR stands for Special Opportunities for Artist Residencies. Since 1991, SOAR has made it possible for schools to provide students opportunities that are far beyond the constraints of today’s shrinking budgets. A wide variety of artists, writers, and performers of both local and national renown, have provided students of the Oshkosh Area School District with glimpses of beauty and the excitement of creativity.


SOAR is a non-profit organization run entirely by volunteers.
