About Admission

Curiosity, hard work, creativity, and inclusiveness . . .
These are the earmarks of an Albuquerque Academy education.

At the Academy, we look for the brightest students in the region, those with intelligence, character, and an eagerness to learn. We’re serious about creating an educational experience that shapes sharp-minded students into purposeful, ethical, independent learners.

Our students typically come from over ninety different schools throughout the greater Albuquerque region, and they all share one thing in common: a nearly insatiable curiosity. This trait forms the foundation of their academic lives.

We admit students in grades 6-12 in the fall of each year. The admission process begins early — in the fall before the year of attendance — and closes on February 10.

You may request admission information online. You may also download application forms to complete and mail, or apply online beginning in late August. If you prefer a printed application or would like to speak with someone about admission, please call the Admission Office at 505-828-3208, or e-mail
