Experience Albuquerque Academy
“I’m learning a lot about how to become a leader.”
“My school life has always been really important to me, but I’ve also realized that a lot of the experiences that I want to have in high school aren’t just school-based. They’re also related to extracurricular activities that I do, and also the friends that I’ve made.”
“I love my classes…. Everyday I’m like, ‘I GET to go to that class.'”
The Academy Experience
For more than 60 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 2017, Chargers in grades 8-12 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.
In 2017, 25 Academy juniors were named National Merit Scholarship Semifinalists, putting us among the top 10 independent schools in the nation for the tenth consecutive year.
