Sora Schools is the project-based, virtual middle & high school that helps students soar. Our innovative curriculum takes online school from sitting-behind-your-desk school and turns it into an engaging experience for each student’s unique needs.
We are now enrolling 6th through 11th grade for fall.

Learn how our customizable curriculum will encourage hands-on learning and re-ignite their curiosity. Student projects have demonstrated mastery in the language arts, humanities, and STEM fields — all while working towards their careers.
Unlike traditional schools that teach out of a textbook, Sora’s learning expeditions are designed to engage students in applied learning. They might learn geometry through designing their own architecture plans, philosophy and rhetoric through analyzing popular films, and anatomy through an expert-led dissection.
Sora’s full-time, fully accredited program is comprised of creative lessons (like “The Science of Marvel,” “Engineering Rollercoasters,” and “Philosophy, Logic, and the Art of Argumentation”) and self-directed independent assignments that lead students to tackle questions from “What if Monet was a contemporary artist working with digital tools?” to “What are the economics behind building a tiny house community?” and beyond.
According to a study on comparing student performance in cooperative learning versus traditional lecture-based learning, students who learn through hands-on projects and small group discussion perform significantly better than lecture-based students in both recall and problem solving.
At Sora, students work with our teachers to design and create hands-on projects based on what they’re interested in learning–anything from computer science to 18th century Victorian fashion. Teachers help students scope their projects and incorporate academic standards from Math, Science, English, History, and more.
Students, with the aid of learning experts, construct individual education plans tailored to their exploration path. Because we give the students autonomy and voice in their learning, they are more engaged and have better academic outcomes.
We follow a learning model where our teachers serve to challenge students, structure individual curriculum plans, and facilitate their learning, not deliver boring lectures.
