Welcome to El Sol Science and Arts Academy
El Sol Academy, a dual-immersion charter school founded in 2001 with 110 students, now enrolls nearly 1,000 students in preschool through eighth grade. Despite continuous adjustments to the educational landscape, El Sol Academy continues to grow in both size and achievement with high expectations for students’ success.
El Sol has been named a Bright Spot Awardee by The White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanics, the California Charter School of the Year, a California Distinguished School, a Title I Academic Achievement Awardee, a California Association for Bilingual Educators Seal of Excellence Award, a Campaign for Business & Education Excellence (CBEE) STAR awardee.
These distinguished awards highlight the unique dual-immersion curriculum that teaches advanced levels of knowledge and proficiency in English and Spanish. El Sol ensures students’ success by employing a thorough and diverse curriculum, exemplary professional development for teachers, commitment to parental involvement, and supplementary programs.
Our extended day program offers intensive academic instruction for struggling students while also incorporating rich, cultural enrichment activities. El Sol’s preschool establishes strong early-childhood foundational skills while the SOS-El Sol Wellness Center, a Federally Qualified Health Center, provides a wide range of health services for El Sol’s families.
El Sol Academy uses six pillars: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship to build great character in each individual student. Moreover, the El Sol faculty and staff are committed to teaching students how to be exemplary citizens in both the local and global community.
