At Albuquerque Academy, we create an educational experience that shapes eager students into purposeful, ethical, independent learners. Our students come from more than 80 different schools throughout greater Albuquerque and around the world, and they all share one thing: an insatiable curiosity.
The diversity of our student body fosters mutual respect and the sharing of unique ideas, important components of learning and growing. Your child, too, has unique gifts and talents that can benefit from and be served by our community. We’d love to meet your family.

Tuition for the 2022-23 school year is $26,176, which includes the academic experience, lunch, and most extracurriculars. It does not cover the cost of some textbooks, bookstore incidentals, and laptops in grades 8-12.
Full and Partial Tuition Assistance Available: Students from all economic backgrounds are welcomed and supported at Albuquerque Academy. Admission to the Academy is based on merit, and the financial needs of families who apply for tuition assistance are considered in a separate, confidential process. Nearly one-quarter of our student body receives tuition assistance — from partial awards for students from families who earn relatively higher incomes or may be supporting multiple children at the Academy to full awards for students from families with more limited resources. The average award is $16,025. You can count on the admission and tuition assistance teams to partner with your family to do what we can to make an Academy education possible for your child. Learn more about tuition assistance here.
Early Decision Option: We are excited to offer an early decision option for Fall 2023 applicants to grade 6 whose first educational preference is Albuquerque Academy. Students who choose early decision will have the opportunity to learn their admission and tuition assistance decisions by January 31 and enroll by February 8, 2023.
If you believe Albuquerque Academy is the best school for your child, we encourage you to elect an “Early Decision” application type on the parent/guardian questionnaire within the admission checklist in your ChargerHub Admission Portal. The deadline for early decision applications for both admission and tuition assistance is December 8, 2022, and your child must take the Academy’s admission test by December 13, 2022 for early consideration. Please contact the admission office for more details (email@example.com or 505-828-3208).
