Admissions season at SOLA.

It’s finally here: the time of year when I get to meet the Afghan girls whose dreams will shape the future of our country.

Admissions season at SOLA is underway.

As you know, our growth model is to add a new 6th grade class annually — and right now, as you read this, we’re looking for students from all across Afghanistan to join our 6th grade class in March of 2020.

They’ll be joining our nearly 80 girls who come to us from 25 of Afghanistan’s 34 provinces. Take a look for yourself — I absolutely love this map. Our goal is to represent all 34 provinces by 2022, and we’re closer now than we’ve ever been.


I hope you’ll help us spread the word about admissions season. Interested families can reach us via:

March 2020: it’s eight months away, but the time will fly by. In eight months, our new 6th graders will be joining us in Kabul. In eight months, they’ll be welcomed to campus by their older classmates. By their fellow students. By their sisters that they didn’t know they had.

In eight months, we will be, for the first time in our history, a boarding school of Grades 6-10.

SOLA is growing — and I’m so happy to have you with us.
