Building a school with our children at the center..

"We are the salt of the earth...."

As we ​start with the foundation of SOTE Academy, we are evaluating budget, academic programs/ achievement, school safety, and facilities/ infrastructure! We are also paying close attention to where schools are going in the future to ensure the most cutting edge of education for our children. 


Because it's a good indicator for stability and opportunity, we are honing into the demand of SOTE Academy by gauging the interest of YOU, our parents! Therefore, we've created a budget based upon a minimum amount of students required to establish SOTE as an academy compared to none other. 

Most comprehensive and competitive, we've put together a tuition totally aimed at improving the quality of education that our students receive from our educators and support staff. In addition to providing the most qualified educators, our staff will be trained on how to identify patterns and behaviors which can lead to academic regression and classroom disruptions. You can trust that we are committed to understanding the problems our students face and finding interventions which don't impede student achievement. 

The access to finance doesn't just spell out more programs for our students. Our entire committee is also committed to teaching our children in a safe environments. All staff members will receive on the state's policy and procedures for keeping our children safe. 

Finally, with the support of our amazing community, we will use charitable funding avenues and resources to further improve facilities with updated repairs to existing establishment. 

As we continue to crack the surface constructing SOTE Academy, we encourage all families to apply TODAY

Many Blessings,

Our Philosophy: Matthew 5:13-16

13 “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.

14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
