welcome to SOSA!

SOSA is an alternative education charter school. We currently have three sites located throughout the district to serve the students of Three Rivers School District: Illinois Valley site, Jerome Prairie site and Merlin site. Being a charter school, we are also able to service students from other districts.

With a broad range of student needs, situations and schedules, the staff at SOSA strive to offer students an educational experience that is more individualized and diverse. From lower class sizes, which provides more one-on-one direct instruction, to online course offerings, our students have a vast menu of experiences and opportunities available for them.

We serve grade levels 6-12 and have a maximum enrollment of 300. If you think that you, or your student would benefit from this kind of educational experience, please contact us at 541-476-2524.
