Trivia Night: Expedition Edition

At Sora, students actively explore novel subjects and fields of study through Learning Expeditions. 

These expeditions are active learning experiences designed by our Learning Experts, held a couple of times per week and centered on a topic based on community level interest. 

This 1-hour engaging virtual event gives prospective parents a front row seat to Sora’s world-class Learning Expeditions in the form of trivia, led by our parent ambassadors. 

Come meet our incomparable Admissions team members, dive into an interactive learning activity, and connect with other families interested in exploring Sora’s innovative curriculum.

If you know of interested families who may be looking for a change, or curious about Sora, (or people who just love trivia) feel free to extend the invite! Our Trivia Night event will serve as an authentic way to connect with current Sora parents, have some fun, and learn more about how we build an intentional and vibrant student led community. Learn more about our learning expeditions here. 

What is a day at Sora like?

Student calendars look like this ➡️

During the day they have unstructured time to work on their project, Learning Goals, and pre-assigned work for upcoming sessions.

Sora’s weekly schedule operates on a block schedule: Mondays/Thursdays and Tuesdays/Fridays. Wednesdays tend to be more flexible days for meetings and project work. Individual schedules depend on the student’s expeditions and tracks.

As parents, you may log onto the Sora Home portal to view your student’s calendars as well.

Every student has an individual project at all times. They are either in the Generalist track, or a career track. Both are led by Track Advisors.

Sora is "traditional"

Sora supports time-honored traditions that parents can look forward to down the road and reinforce that students won’t “miss out” on certain key happenings.

Students meet with each other every school day, collaborating on group projects, participating in clubs and extracurricular activities, and socializing.

Peer-to-peer accountability is a key aspect of their education, and students consistently enrich the education of other students. Students meet constantly throughout the week, academically and socially, allowing them to build strong bonds and lifelong friendships.
