We Are Albuquerque Academy
We are an independent, nonprofit, coeducational, college preparatory day school serving middle school and high school students in grades 6 through 12, located in Albuquerque, NM.
“The best thing here is you’re going to feel like you belong. You’re never going to feel like an outsider.”
“The main thing I’ve really come to appreciate about the teachers is they make learning approachable and enjoyable.”
“The Academy is a place where you can do everything.”
“Here, it’s just such a different experience… it’s so much more than just coming to class every day.”
“Everyone is here to lift each other up and help each other out, and I don’t think you can get that experience anywhere else.”
“Transferring from a public school was a really big change for us. But once I got here, I really felt welcomed.”
“I was really impressed by this block of four students who stuck together and built each other up.”
~ Jason Zuffranieri, math teacher
The Academy Experience
For nearly 70 years, we have offered an education that broadens perspectives, sharpens minds, strengthens bodies, and engages hearts.
Inside The Classroom
Some of the best faculty in the country inspire, mentor, and guide Academy students on their academic journey.
Beyond The Classroom
For Chargers, learning occurs in many different settings beyond the walls of a traditional classroom.
How are we preparing your student for college and life?
Through Academics, athletics, community service, outdoor education and extracurricular activities, Chargers have ample opportunities to become leaders.
Making a Difference
Academy students in every grade participate in Community Service. In 2022-23, Chargers in grades 6-12 logged more than 11,000 hours of community service.
Strong Bonds that Last
During their time at Academy, students build extraordinary relationships with classmates and faculty members – relationships that last a lifetime.
