At SOAR, we understand the importance of educating students and families about the college admissions and financial aid process!

Personalized Scholarship Assistance:
Assisting High-School and College Students to gain private, merit and need based scholarship opportunities.
Millions of dollars in unclaimed scholarship money is left on the table each year. College Scholarship Consultant Elisa Turner provides comprehensive, one-on-one scholarship counseling services to help high-school and college students navigate the complicated scholarship process. Students work directly with Elisa on pre-college planning, career & major exploration, developing a strong college and scholarship list. Students will focus on time management skills,meeting deadlines, college application essays, and building a unique brand for finding scholarship & financial aid resources.
Making College Dreams Come true
The problem is more critical for some than others. Many of our districts are in depressed and economically disadvantaged areas. In some elementary schools, 50% of the students are on the free or reduced lunch programs. This, of course, transcends into the high school with students and families struggling to meet daily needs. Going to college becomes a unfulfilled dream for most families.
Through the Scholarship Consulting Services program, SOAR can provide opportunities and options so that students and parents can make an informed choice when selecting a college that meets all the needs of students, including the academic program that is best for the student, the financial aid offered, and campus compatibility.
Our program will help parents complete and submit financial aid forms, give parents resources and advice to better understand and navigate the college admissions process. We will answer questions, address concerns, and provide information that will enable parents to feel more confident about the somewhat confusing and frustrating college admissions and financial aid process..
SOAR was established in 2013 as a Personalized College & Scholarship Program. Many bright, ambitious students have passed through our program. We were founded on the belief that every student has the opportunity to gain financial assistance for college. With a little help,knowledge and guidance to develop the skills necessary,students can successfully compete for scholarship opportunities.
Over the past ten years, I have helped students to gain a deeper understanding of themselves and build stronger writing and comprehension skills. As a result, these students have earned scholarship success, and grown in self-esteem and confidence. We love celebrating these victories with our students.
