In-person opportunities

We believe school is about community

We continue to provide new and innovative ways for students to connect online and in person.

Fostering In-Person Connections

This year we piloted an in-person co-learning space in Atlanta where almost a dozen students attend regularly, and for students in other parts of the country, we connect families in the same geographic areas for local meet-ups like scheduled dinners, co-learning sessions, group projects, field trips, and more. Additionally, many of our students connect in person with one another during their travels across the country and the world! As we think about next school year, Sora’s team is considering how we might offer additional opportunities for in-person connections in the form of regular regional pop-up meetings that offer social, educational, and community service-oriented components for students and their families.

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