We believe that children's lives change when their natural passion for learning is nurtured and transformed into habits of life-long learning and reflection. We believe that the world changes as these children learn to serve country and community with wisdom, conviction, and compassion.
Our admission process allows us to meet families, like yours, with curious and motivated students who would benefit from an Albuquerque Academy education and contribute to our community. We’ll get to know each other through the admission process that includes workshops, group activities, and other fun, child-centered events.
Albuquerque Academy is an independent, college preparatory day school for boys and girls in grades six through twelve. The Academy prides itself on offering an educational program based on creative, independent doing and thinking.
Athletics is an integral part of the Academy experience. Every season our student-athletes gain lifelong lessons in the value of competition, perseverance, hard work, and the true meaning of teamwork.
Beyond the classroom, nearly all Albuquerque Academy students are involved in multiple extracurricular activities. Opportunities abound to participate in a wide range of clubs and activities, exchange programs, community service and sustainability initiatives, and student publications.
Inherent in the Albuquerque Academy mission is a commitment to supporting the wider community through outreach and community service. In addition to the Community and Global Citizenship program that is part of the curriculum, the Academy offers a number of other programs for the wider community.
