Spaces are limited and going fast, apply now!

We are currently accepting applications for August 2024 enrollment. Spaces for the 2024-2025 school year are filling up fast! We review applications on a rolling basis in the order we receive them, and the admissions committee considers applicants based on this order. For families applying for need-based tuition assistance, Sora's Flexible Tuition budget is limited at this time, and will soon be exhausted. We encourage families considering Flexible Tuition to apply now to ensure funds are available. You are invited to attend an upcoming Info Session to learn more about all that Sora has to offer and apply now!

Admissions Process

  • Attend Info Session

    Our 45-minute Info Session is a great opportunity for you to learn more about school reimagined, get to know our remarkable community, and take a deeper dive into the Sora experience. We also host a 15-minute optional After Party, where you can meet school leaders, connect with other prospective parents, and ask questions!

  • Talk to Admissions

    OPTIONAL

    If you have additional questions about your admissions process, or want to dive more into how the program works and understand whether it is a good fit for your student, our Admissions Team is standing by to meet with you.

    • 30 Min Zoom Meeting (available following Info Session)

      Our Admissions Team can’t wait to meet you for a 1:1 meeting!

  • Post Info Session Student Exploration Opportunities

    OPTIONAL
    • Sora Visit Day: Our “day in the life of” experience, which students can preview at any time. These recorded adventures let students sit in on house meetings, attend classes, and preview student life on their own time–as soon as today! 
    • Student Ambassador Office Hours: Our live weekly meetings are a great opportunity to connect with members of our student community! Whether your student has specific questions or just wants to know more about campus culture, this is a great way to learn more from a fellow student. Pro tip: follow up your asynchronous virtual visit experience by meeting synchronously with a current student!
    • Discovery Days: Our monthly live virtual events are designed as an overview to provide prospective students the opportunity to explore and learn more about the school and our program. Students will interact with faculty, staff, and current students, participate in class expositions, attend presentations, engage with student life, and experience Sora for themselves.
  • Student Application

    Our admission portal lets you manage your application, view next steps, upload supporting documents, and track your progress. Here are the steps you will need to complete in order to submit your application for review.

    • Parent Questionnaire - Background information, family details, and insight into the student's passions, strengths, and opportunities for growth.
    • Student Questionnaire - The student shares more about their academic background and interests from their point of view. See our Student Questionnaire Guide.
    • Education Savings Account (ESA) - Indicate whether or not your family is interested in pursuing state-funded ESA opportunities. If yes, you will be directed to our ESA page for further information. 
    • Flexible Tuition Acknowledgement - Indicate whether or not your family will be applying for need-based tuition assistance. If yes, you will be directed to the Clarity application, which must be completed at the same time as the admission application to be considered for aid. 
    • Academic Records - Any coursework in progress for this current academic year, as well as complete academic records for the two previous school years. Unofficial records accepted for application, but will need official documents as part of enrollment. Homeschool record template available in application portal.
    • Teacher/Mentor Evaluations (2 required) - Evaluation requests will be sent directly via the application portal. Please have email addresses ready for both evaluators. Both evaluations may be completed by an academic teacher, advisor, administrator, or tutor. The second evaluation may alternatively be completed by a mentor, coach, or club/volunteer group leader. In the case of homeschool families, the parent/teacher may fulfill this requirement if no other educator is available. 
    • Additional Supplements (optional) - May include letters of recommendation, portfolio work, and/or writing samples. We also accept the SSAT and/or Character Skills Snapshot - our school code is 2903. Finally, you are welcome to include a personal statement video (60 seconds, uploaded directly in the application portal), but none of these are required to complete your application.
    • Student Interview - 30-minute Zoom interview with a member of the Admissions Team.
  • Decision

    Families are formally informed about the decision.
