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 high school 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 program, 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!
An expert at Sora is completely different than teachers at other schools. At Sora, our experts are free to provide value to our students in any way that excites them. You have the freedom to choose which workshops and lecture series you create based on your own interests and the interests of our students. Since we do not have a scope or sequence for our students, you will be answering topical questions to help them work through their projects. One second a student may be asking about rocketry, and the next someone needs help with an app to promote climate change. You are the one destination for all things related to your subject area. Because of this, you will be asked a wide range of questions every day. If you do not know the answer, try to teach the student a new way of thinking which will help them become unblocked.
