An Arroyo Runs Through It

Albuquerque Academy is located in northeast Albuquerque, a city with a metro area population of just over 845,900 bordered by the Sandia Indian Pueblo on the north, the Isleta Indian Pueblo on the south, the Sandia Mountains (elevation 10,678 feet) on the east, and the Rio Grande on the west. New Mexico's multicultural population includes Native American, Hispanic, African-American, Asian, Anglo, and other groups. Albuquerque is home to The University of New Mexico, Sandia National Laboratories, Kirtland Air Force Base, and numerous high tech research and development companies. The area is known for its cultivation and support of the arts.

The Academy's 312-acre main campus includes the West Campus (grades 6 and 7), and the East Campus (grades 8-12). The school's required outdoor education program often takes place at the Academy's 270-acre Bear Canyon property in the Sandia Mountains and at other sites throughout the state.

Facilities Use

List of 4 items.

  • Community Use of Academy Facilities

    In keeping with Albuquerque Academy's mission and commitment to outreach, we are pleased to make campus facilities available for rental to community organizations. Our campus contains a range of both indoor and outdoor venues which can be used for meetings, conferences, seminars, concerts, performances, film viewings, sport activities, and other special events.
    Albuquerque Academy is particularly interested in working with organizations whose missions match that of the school and involve serving children. First priority for space is always given to the Academy community.

    To request use of a facility, an organization must complete a Facility Rental Request Form. For best consideration, please submit requests at least six weeks in advance of your event.

    All groups using Albuquerque Academy facilities are required to have:
    –­ a signed contract,
    ­– a valid certificate of insurance that meets our coverage requirements, and
    ­– an approved faculty/staff sponsor.

    Note: If a group does not have all three requirements in place before its event, use of campus facilities will not be allowed. Thirty days prior to the event, all groups are required to have a copy of the signed contract and, on the day of the event, an approved faculty/staff sponsor must be present. If these requirement are not met, access to the facilities will not be allowed.

    Rates for Albuquerque Academy facilities rentals are based solely on operating costs for the space. Payment for use of the space must be received at least 10 days prior to the event.

    All rates include basic custodial work and event set-up which vary by space. Any additional equipment needed can be rented either from Albuquerque Academy, or from an approved vendor.

    Sponsor: All events require an Academy faculty/staff sponsor. This sponsor must be a contracted faculty/staff member hired by the Academy to be present for the entire event. A fee of $25 per hour will be charged to the organization, starting from the time of set-up to the completion of take-down following the event. There is a four-hour minimum charge. The sponsor will be selected by the Academy upon approval of the event.

    Technician: If Simms Center for the Performing Arts is used, a fee of $25-50 per hour, for a minimum of four hours, will be charged for audio/visual technical support.
