What School Should Be

Sora Schools is the pioneering middle and high school that empowers curious students with the freedom to pursue their interests and discover who they are. We’ve transformed school from a boring, solitary experience into an engaging, collaborative program that allows students to choose and design their classes and projects for their interests and goals.

At Sora, students learn how to become independent, critical thinkers that are prepared for the next phase of their lives.

A school for creative thinkers, big dreamers, and change-the-worlders

We believe potential isn’t defined by grades. The average millionaire had a C+ in college; meanwhile, plenty of uninspired students get straight As. We find and accelerate high-potential students with boundless curiosity just waiting to be unlocked.

At Sora, students discover what they find beautiful and important in the world. They learn by diving into classes and projects grounded in real problems – helping them answer an important question: What will you work towards?

The world has changed. Why hasn't education?

Sora is school reimagined for the 21st century, bringing the best learning science and educational practices to you through the internet.

Personalized Curriculum

Every student designs their own curriculum, choosing from a wide array of real-world learning opportunities that ignite their curiosity.

Flexible Tuition Program

Flexible Tuition is Sora’s need-based tuition assistance program. This program allows families to apply for reduced tuition. As a result, a Sora education is affordable to qualified students who could not otherwise join our school community.

Passionate Culture

Sora is a tight-knit, inclusive community. Students of all backgrounds come together to create legendary work. They form incredible friendships and relationships with their peers and the faculty.

How Our Program Works

At Sora, our teachers design live, online classes that are interdisciplinary, engaging, and made relevant to today’s world. Eventually, students also pitch independent study projects to guide their own learning with the help of an expert.

Our daily schedule looks much more like a university than a middle or high school: our students spend 2-4 hours per day in live, engaging classes, labs, or debates and use the rest of their time on pre-reading, assignments, personal projects, office hours, advising meetings, or student-run clubs.

A Unique Blend of Virtual and In-Person Learning

Sora is a virtual-first school, but we also believe in the importance of in-person experiences in education.

Through a partnership with Kaipod Learning, we offer the opportunity for our students to meet and learn alongside other students in-person in physical locations around the country.

This program is a supplement to a student’s daily program and experience at Sora–students can enroll at Sora with or without the co-learning space option.
