Friends of SoHDA aims to raise financial support for The School of History and Dramatic Arts (SoHDA), an LAUSD public high school (part of the Sonia Sotomayor Learning Academies) as well as to develop mutually beneficial ties among the community, students, parents, and alumni.


The purpose of Friends of SoHDA (FoS) is to raise funds to support the school as well as to involve the parents, students, teacher, and community stakeholders in defining and shaping new goals going forward. The starting short and long term goals of Friends of SoHDA come from the “Mission and Vision” of the Public School Choice design as well as from observing the challenges implementing that design within the budget constraints of the school. FoS will refine and expand the goals as the group grows by seeking input from stakeholders.
