Why Sora Schools

Hear from a few Sora students about what makes Sora special. Sora is a live, virtual project-based middle school designed to accelerate students towards their wildest dreams.

Welcome to Sora

Here, we do school… differently. Why? Because it’s the 21st century! And today’s students need a modern version of middle school built around them, and things they care about.

Meet Christopher Wilson, Head of Schools

Sora Schools is a virtual, project-based, fully accredited middle school designed to accelerate students towards their wildest dreams: whether that’s college, starting a new business, jumping straight into their career, or anything in between.

SETTING UP STUDENTS FOR SUCCESS IN LIFE

In the first year of middle school, the focus is a self-portrait through an identity project where students explore answers to reflective questions such as:

  • Who am I as an individual?
  • What are my passions, interests, and skills?
  • What makes me a global citizen?

Students design self-portraits reflecting their identities and their portraits take a variety of forms, including 2D artwork, 3D modeling and sculpture, poetry and song, essay, video, or performance.

INTERESTING & CHALLENGING PROJECTS

An entrepreneurship project is also part of year one, where students design and operate a for-profit or nonprofit business, learning about money management, supply and demand, and project management. They create a product to sell, advertise, and balance a budget.

In the year two capstone project, students choose a topic or area of interest and develop a product that encourages them to grow in their understanding and skills related to this topic.

Project management and study skills are applied to the project development, and students share their process, key learnings, and products and an exhibition at the entrepreneurship market fair close out their middle school experience.

SOCIAL EXPERIENCE

Sora middle school students are immersed in social activities – from “House” leadership to student clubs and even our champion e‑sports team.

I think we should pay attention to the things that we want to learn that we’re going to use in the future. And the fact that you can connect with students with similar interests has been really helpful.

William, Captain of Sora's
e-sports team

I want to focus on ocean conservation and shark protection, and all of that started from going to one Expedition at Sora.

Cymri, Sora grad

When I started, it felt like I had been there forever, everyone is so supportive. The debate club is my favorite club.

Colton, Sora student

With my house, we actually got close enough where we exchanged numbers. And we have this group chat where we talk outside of school and plan to meet up.

“I love working with Sora students because the creative care and innovation that I see them display each day gives me hope for a better future. They consistently manage to make me laugh and bring me so much joy. I could never imagine not loving this job!“
“Sora is different from any other online school because we offer so many opportunities for socialization! With clubs, pop-up events, and house activities, our students have so many opportunities to connect with their peers and form lasting friendships.”
“I love working with Sora students because they're so thoughtful and are always thinking outside the box! We get to be so creative and learn about all kinds of exciting topics together.”
“My favorite thing about Sora students is that they're not only intellectually curious, they're also intellectually generous. I'm constantly inspired by how willing they are to share project ideas, creations, and feedback with the community in order to build and iterate on a collective learning space.”
“Sora is different from any other school because the focus isn't on test scores. It's about making good students into great adults. Here, each student has a unique experience because they are able to have more preference on how they want to learn and what they would like to learn about.”
