SOUL employs a team of support staff professionals who are trained to identify and address social issues that can often prevent students from realizing their full academic potential. For students who are pregnant or already have a child, SOUL offers parenting support programs as well as a Head Start 0 to 5 location on site.
SOUL is also saying goodbye to a longtime employee and friend. Sam Hairston, who has been with the charter school since January 2001, is retiring. He began his journey as the Lead Facilitator at SOUL, and is now an Assessment & Career Guidance Coordinator, assisting seniors with job placement and continuing education. Sam has touched so many lives over the years, helping students make major life decisions as they prepare for life after high school. School administrators say they appreciate all his contributions to Fresno EOC, SOUL students, and the community. Sam will retire at the end of June.
In addition to a rigorous academic, standards-based curriculum, Fresno EOC School of Unlimited Learning (SOUL) offers support programs for students who are parents, as well as a Head Start 0 to 5 location on site. The campus also has a pantry full of necessities where students can shop free of charge. There are leadership opportunities, as well. For example, the school has an Interact Club, Rotary International’s service club for young people ages 12 to 18. SOUL was first chartered in 1998 through Fresno Unified. It is operated by Fresno EOC and accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. As a free California public charter school, SOUL does not charge tuition.
