A Tradition of Excellence
The Academy curriculum is exclusively college preparatory and, because of the rigorous nature of the program and the selectivity of the admission policy, all courses are equivalent to honors-level courses as they are usually known.
Last year, 25 Albuquerque Academy juniors were named Semifinalists in the 2017 National Merit Scholarship Program. With 25, Albuquerque Academy is among the top 10 independent schools in the nation (for the tenth consecutive year).
Almost all Academy graduates enroll in four-year colleges immediately after graduation. Each year approximately 150 graduates enroll in more than 70 different institutions in the U.S., Canada and abroad. The Class of 2016 was awarded $19 million in merit or non-need-based scholarships. Follow-up studies indicate that, on average, Academy graduates earn higher academic averages as college freshmen than they did as Academy students.
Student artists – visual and performing – creative an imaginative range of work each year and our recognized at the national level for their skills, talent, and innovation. In 2016, our students received 25 Southwest Regional Scholastic Writing Awards.
In addition to academic success, Academy’s student athletes have a remarkable legacy. Academy athletes have earned more than 150 state championship titles through their dedication, earnest effort, and character.
For more than 60 years, Albuquerque Academy has been helping New Mexico’s best and brightest students pursue their passions, discover their futures, and reach their potential.
