Our Mission & Vision: Building On An Excellent Foundation

Misión y Visión

Our Focus

Salida del Sol Academy began as an idea—to meet the unique educational needs of students on the east side of Greely-Evans. In 2011, planning began in earnest for a K–8 charter school in Weld County. After intensive research, the charter committee adopted an evidence-based, dual-language model of instruction from Gómez and Gómez. In conjunction with Common Core, SDSA’s curriculum was born. 

Greeley-Evans School District #6 approved our charter application in 2014, and on January 27, 2014, we entered into a formal charter contract. Salida del Sol Academy opened its doors on September 2, 2014, in a new 70,000 square foot building located at 111 E. 26th Street, Greeley, Colorado. 

From those beginnings, SDSA offers over 700 kindergarten through eighth-grade students a free, public charter school education to meet their unique dual-language needs.

Our Mission

Salida del Sol Academy provides a supportive and challenging, personalized, bilingual and multicultural education for students from kindergarten through eighth grade. Our students demonstrate pride, self-confidence, and mutual respect while acquiring the academic foundation necessary to become successful leaders.
