ABOUT US

SoME, is the School of Meaningful Experiences. Devoted to inspiring Curiosity, fostering Creativity, building genuine Confidence, improving Communication, enabling Collaboration, and ensuring Competence.

The 6 Cs

The main goal of School of Meaningful Experiences is to prepare teenagers to get the most out of their education and careers. We do this by cultivating the following six traits in each of our students.

Curiosity

There are a lot of ways to teach the same knowledge, but only by encouraging curiosity can we create a lifelong learner, with the potential to pursue any field of their choosing.

Communication

Learning to formulate and express thoughts and ideas is the key to a balanced and successful life. Especially for those inclined towards leadership roles.

Confidence

Learning to formulate and express thoughts and ideas is the key to a balanced and successful life. Especially for those inclined towards leadership roles.

Creativity

A human being without creativity is as good as a machine. Only with creative thinking and acting can we tackle real-world problems that cannot simply be explained in a textbook.

Collaboration

There’s only so much one person can do on their own. Being able to work in a team is the key to professional success.

Competence

It’s not enough to be, people need to do. So figure out what it is you want to do, what you are good at, what you can shape a career and a life around, and what you want to excel at.

Our Team

SoME was built from the ground up by a diverse group of conscientious individuals sharing an inclination towards education and a drive to produce positive change.
