Student Life

What makes Sora are the students

Daily schedule

The Monday through Friday daily school schedule is not a block period schedule where students sit in class for several hours back-to-back. Nor is it primarily independent, asynchronous, and self-paced. Instead, our program balances synchronous or live meetings such as Expeditions and participation in student life, with asynchronous or independent working time with Individual Studies Projects and Activities.

Are you concerned about time zones?
At Sora, we provide varying school start times for each of the four time zones in the US.

Middle School Example

There is no typical day at Sora

At Sora, the daily schedule resembles that of a college, featuring morning Standup and afternoon Checkpoint meetings, interspersed with two to three Learning Expeditions. 

I like the way the classes are structured, with us finishing the final project as we go through rather than a huge pileup of work at the end.

What is Standup & Checkpoint?

I like that the school doesn't bring out textbook classes, and they all actually feel interesting.

Middle School Student

Learning can happen at home or on the road

One student studied French and European history while his parents were on sabbatical in Nice, and another traveled the country in an RV with his family, visiting National Parks and creating an app that provided helpful information for other visitors.
