From Albuquerque Academy

Like our teachers, Academy students are world-class artists and athletes, scholars and explorers. The Academy is one of the top schools in the country, and we set each student on their own lifelong path of learning and doing. Through challenging coursework, deep connections with faculty and friends, and meaningful experiential education, our students grow to understand the greater world and how they can go out and serve it with wisdom, conviction, and compassion.

Albuquerque Academy is a non-denominational, coeducational, independent day school serving 1,163 students in grades six through 12. 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.
