Located on Albuquerque’s Southwest Mesa, Solare Collegiate Charter School prides itself on being an academically ambitious, purposefully structured and consistently kind school community, with a strong focus on literacy, character and student voice. Solare Collegiate Charter School was founded by Rachael Sewards, who was previously a ‘Highly Effective’ teacher at Cochiti Middle School in Peña Blanca and served as a founding middle school teacher at The ASK Academy in Rio Rancho. Ms. Sewards participated in the prestigious Building Excellent Schools (BES) Fellowship, which trains strong leaders to build and launch a high-achieving school that responds to the needs of its community. Excellent Schools New Mexico provided funding to support Ms. Sewards’ BES Fellowship and provided start-up capital to help launch Solare Collegiate Charter School.
