Built for You
A Live, Accredited, Virtual High School Designed to Accelerate Your Student Toward Their Wildest Dreams
Students Thrive at Sora
Students collaborate with teachers to design their curriculum
At Sora, students work with our teachers to design and create hands-on projects based on what they’re interested in learning or studying–anything from computer science to 18th century Victorian fashion. Teachers help students scope their projects and incorporate academic standards from Math, Science, English, History, and Foreign Languages. We follow a learning model where our teachers serve to challenge students, structure individual curriculum plans, and facilitate their learning, not deliver boring lectures. Because we give the students autonomy and voice in their learning, they are more engaged and have better academic outcomes.
Work on Hands On Projects
Engage in Active Learning with Peers
Meet with Industry Mentors
A thoughtful blend of live and independent learning
At Sora, projects and live classes, or Learning Expeditions, held by our teachers encourage students to dive deep into subjects and develop lasting knowledge. However, it is also important for students to first understand the foundational concepts–for that, we create and curate online videos, books, articles, and adaptive practice for students to gain confidence before putting their skills to work. Additionally, students have quick access to teachers and TAs if they ever get stuck.
A schedule like college, not a factory
We believe teenagers are incredible, but our system is underestimating them. Instead of mandating seat-time for students, we give them plenty of time for deep, focused work between their meetings and Learning Expeditions. Students can reach out to their teachers or TAs at any time throughout the day, whether they need help with a project or just want to nerd out about physics!
Competitive in college admissions
Sora’s program was developed in collaboration with faculty and administration at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
Additionally, Sora is one of the first online schools to be selected to join the prestigious Mastery Transcript Consortium. This consortium is a hand-picked group of hundreds of leading, innovative schools which report their transcripts in a common format to gain an advantage in the college admissions process.
An active, social community of students
Education is more than just a collection of knowledge and learning processes–it’s about the relationships, friendships, and network that you build with others. Students at Sora interact with each other multiple times per day and have an active student life, whether it’s participating in House competitions or joining student-run clubs.
Dozens of industry mentors ready to help your student
High school is the last step before a big decision, whether that’s choosing a college and major or starting a first job. We connect every type of student with a mentor with professional work experience who can provide guidance for their goals.

My favorite part is the group projects—they’re really fun.
Sora’s energy is doing a project on something you know nothing about and then getting really into it.
They really challenge Cade to learn new things, pushing his boundaries.
