Salida Del Sol Health and Wellness VISTA
Salida del Sol Academy (SDSA) is the only public charter school providing a dual-language education in Weld County. The founders of SDSA along with many families believed there was a need to bring another educational opportunity to the community. The school was built and opened their doors with 600 students in 2014. In the 2016-2017 school year student population rose to just over 700 students. The student population consists of 88% qualified for the federal free and reduced lunch program and 56% are English language learners (native Spanish speakers). It is our goal for the 2017.2018 school year to increase our population to 745 students. Salida del Sol Academy is committed to offering the best bilingual and multicultural educational opportunities for students and families. It our goal that students will exit eighth grade proficient in English and Spanish and performing on or above grade level in all academic areas. The majority of families at SDSA are native Spanish speaking. SDSA is located in an economically disadvantaged section of the City of Greeley. It is our vision that the location of the school will provide the same opportunity of choice for parents in more affluent parts of the city. Parents are integral to the success of students and the school. By choosing to enroll their children at SDSA, they have become a part of the learning environment and are encouraged to participate. An established volunteer program and opportunities for parent engagement will bring families into the school in support of their student’s education and positively influencing school culture. At Salida del Sol Academy our motto is “Where students RISE”! We’d like to extend that motto to our families and to our community! It is our belief that a dedicated VISTA along with the support of our staff, families and community we will say… “Together we RISE”!
