Atlanta in-person event

Some high school families gathered in Atlanta to connect and explore the city through a place-based learning expedition

Our trip

Sora was founded in Georgia, and there is a higher concentration of Sora students in Atlanta than in any other state. Additionally, Atlanta’s airport offers convenient and affordable air travel options.

A community experience

The event brought together around 15 students from both Chronos and Athena Campuses, along with their families, including parents, grandparents, and siblings. With a total of 30-40 attendees, the group engaged in various activities throughout the weekend. Sora Deans Michael Granado and Alan Parish, as well as co-founder Wesley Samples, were present on Friday and Saturday to support and participate in the event.

Building connections in-person

The event with Chronos and Athena gave students a valuable opportunity to strengthen existing relationships and forge new friendships. Although the two campuses are separate, the in-person gathering enabled students to interact with their peers from both campuses, fostering a more connected and unified Sora community.

The in-person Sora meet-ups are so much fun. They are a great way make and strengthen connections with those at your school. I highly recommend them to anyone that can go; it’s definitely worth trying.

Activities included visiting restaurants, exploring a farmers market, touring historical sites such as the Jimmy Carter Museum and the Martin Luther King Jr. National Site, and observing marine life at the Georgia Aquarium.
