WHAT
SCHOOL
SHOULD BE

There is no institution more vital than school, or more in need of reinvention.

We started Sora simply because we couldn’t not. The more we uncovered about the education system, about how humans learn best and the challenges facing our world, the clearer it became that school was failing both our children and our future.

THE SCHOOL
OF THE
FUTURE

Sora is a pioneering, student-centered middle and high school that empowers the curious with the freedom to pursue their interests and discover who they are.

Students grow by mastering skills and concepts in projects that reflect the real world—while preparing them for the challenges of their future.

They are supported by a diverse, connected community; live and independent learning; thoughtful and engaged faculty; and the most exciting academic journey imaginable with learning expeditions of their choice.

HOW IT ALL BEGAN

Sora’s student-centered mission is supported by world-class educators, entrepreneurs, parents, mentors and technology leaders. Sora was launched in 2019 by founders Garrett Smiley, Wesley Samples, and Indra Sofian, after launching a successful pilot program with foster students in the Atlanta area.

DATA-DRIVEN
AND
RESEARCH-
BACKED

Instead of focusing on the way school traditionally has been, we decided to make a school the way it should be. We designed our curriculum using the latest learning science and hired forward-thinking leaders in education to help us create the school of the future.

Don’t just take our word for it. We’re accredited by Cognia and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) – so our students graduate with a university-accepted high school diploma. And 100% of our students are accepted to college!

Plus, we’ve been accepted as a member of the Mastery Transcript Consortium, a network of schools leading the charge in re-thinking how to demonstrate learning.
