Mission Statement: 

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.


Dedicated to attracting some of the finest students and teachers in the country, Albuquerque Academy is a college preparatory day school enrolling 1,126 young men and women in grades 6-12.

Founded in 1955, the Academy serves the greater Albuquerque area and commits its resources to a mission comprising accessibility, excellence, caring, and outreach.

This mission, along with the Academy's generous financial aid program has fostered one of the strongest student bodies in the nation, with 33 National Merit Semifinalists and 16 Hispanic Scholars in the Class of 2013. Emphasizing mastery of fundamentals and independent judgment, the Academy seeks the full academic, creative, moral, and physical development of each student, and offers a challenging curriculum with more than 20 Advanced Placement courses, as well as experiential education, global languages, and community service programs.
