NO BORING CLASSES

At Sora, our Learning Expeditions are not like traditional classes. They take place in 6-week periods–or cycles–and typically have 2 synchronous hour-long sessions per week
(ex. Mondays and Thursdays or Tuesdays and Fridays).

academy online learning
Interactive

Students participate in interesting debates, labs, games, and activities that allow them to learn in a much more hands-on manner. The teachers are highly engaging and often let the students guide the discussion or activity.

Applicable

In a Learning Expedition, students never have to ask “when will I use this in real life?” By connecting to a topic that students either care about or can apply in life, they become much more interested in the class and actually participate instead of passively listening.

Student-Centered

Students often guide the direction of the Expedition itself, allowing them to tailor their final project topic and deliverable to their particular area of interest. These classes are designed for students to actively drive their own learning.

Highly Engaging
LEARNING EXPEDITIONS

While our accredited classes are designed to capture the imagination and interest of students, what we call Learning Expeditions, they also cover core academic units and standards in math, science, ELA, social studies, and more.

 

Our program packages all the individual units into a mastery-based transcript for colleges and other institutions of higher education, complete with a GPA and details about the student’s academic strengths. Ultimately, our classes help your school engage and retain students by taking your curriculum to the next level.

SORA HOME LMS

At Sora, we’ve in-house designed & developed cutting-edge learning management software that we call Sora Home.

 

On this platform, students can view and submit their assignments, see how they’re performing, view feedback on deliverables from their teachers and other students, and manage their classes.

 

Sora Home captures data about attendance, assignments, and deliverables and flags the teacher if there are any concerns.

Explore the variety of different partnership models we offer to schools. We will gladly design a specific buildout for your academic needs.

LEARNING EXPEDITIONS

Offer a six-week elective class from our catalog of Learning Expeditions to your students. Expand your academic offerings with a suite of classes on a variety of educational topics–the sky’s the limit. Each Expedition takes six weeks to complete and can be scheduled throughout the day or right after regular school hours. You can also increase the number of Expeditions offered, providing an array of fun electives for your students to take.

An example of an elective would be Design for Life, where students use graphic design to communicate important health resources and issues.

ACADEMIC SEMESTER

Your students can take an accredited, semester-long Learning Expedition at Sora that can count towards elective or core academic requirements–anything from art to advanced physics. Provide your students the opportunity to study something new and expand their worldview while earning academic transfer credit. These can be offered in individual semesters or during a regular school year.

An example Learning Expedition would be Commotion in the Ocean, where students study the impact of human activity on the chemical structure of our world’s oceans.

ACADEMIC PROGRAM & INSTRUCTION

Your school fully integrates with Sora, and we can run your academic program and instruction in specific subjects such as math or science, or your entire instruction, powered by Sora.

We will gladly design a specific buildout for your academic needs. Contact our team to discuss your needs and potential options for your school.

World-class
FACULTY

We’ve selected the top 1% of teachers that know how to engage their students and want to help their students find the answers, not lecture at them. Our faculty learn alongside the students and treat the classroom as an educational partnership. They allow students to design what they’re learning around their interests and get to know them.

 

Our diverse team of faculty comes from a variety of backgrounds and from all over the world. In Learning Expeditions, our teacher-to-student ratios are typically capped at 15:1—they really get to know students and build relationships.

“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.”
