Project-Based Learning for High School

Not everyone learns best by the traditional means of reading a textbook, and some subjects are better through hands-on experiences. I happened across a website that offers classes in the format of projects that are live, virtual project-based classes.

Sora offers a wide variety of work + study projects that students are doing with businesses and organizations. Pupils get the opportunity to collaborate with other  classmates and professionals to build a portfolio of real life experiences. High school credit is also given when students complete the class. Currently there are three tracks that are available: Content Writing, Graphic Design, and Video Editing, with plans to offer more areas of study.

Online classes are 5 Days/Week from 9:30AM-1:00PM EST and the student must complete 180 hours for each class.  A pupil can be enrolled in either their full-time program ($300-$800 per month) or their part-time program ($250-$500 per month). Some other nice features are grades and transcripts are given for completed classes and there are counselors to help guide your student with the graduation process. I think is a great help and takes the pressure off of you to decide credits given, classes to take, etc.

Sora offers an Open House for you to be able to see what it would be like to attend. This would be a way to have a first-hand experience of the program. Your student will participate in workshops and meet some of the students and staff. Here is the link for the Open House: CLICK HERE

Have a great week! ~Lisa~
