About Sora

Sora is a No-Compromises Approach to Building the Best School in the World.

The US education system is broken, and we’re building the team to fix that.  Our mission is simple:  build the replacement to the broken US education system.

Most schools continue to do the same things they’ve always done:  making students memorize content, test them, score them, and rank them.  What’s happening?  Students are losing their creativity, motivation and are utterly unprepared to succeed in the real world.

In our virtual program, our middle and high school students work on passion-based projects that they get to create and take wherever they wish.  They don’t attend lecture-based classes or read old textbooks—they’re building video games, writing fantasy novels, conducting scientific research, and more!  We connect them with industry mentors to expose them to new careers and fields of study.  Students learn not only the full breadth of academic subjects but also important soft skills and subjects such as financial literacy, philosophy, and more.  Our school is organized in small, tight-knit cohorts so every group of students and faculty can feel close and engaged in their community.

We’ve embarked on our journey to accelerate students toward their wildest dreams. We can’t wait for you to join us!
