SOAR for CAE Students

If you aren’t participating in SCE, you will be arriving on campus Sunday, July 17 by 5pm to start activities for CAE and SOAR.

  • English and Math placement tests are mandatory and we strongly encourage you to complete your language placement test if you are thinking of continuing a language.
  • Register for SOAR as soon as possible as we are holding your spot for you.
  • CAE will pay for CAE students’ accommodation, which will be a double room shared with another student.
  • If your parents/guardians are coming and staying for SOAR with you, they need to make their own accommodations. CAE cannot pay for other people coming with you to SOAR.

Please email if you have any questions.
