How to Enroll
We will be accepting new student lottery applications in grades 6-11* for the 2015-2016 school year March 1st-31st. Students selected in the lottery will be required to complete the entire enrollment process to ensure they are approved to attend. Siblings of current students will be given preference in the lottery.
We will continue to accept applications after all lottery winners are notified. Students that become sufficient will be offered a position on the waitlist, and seat offers will be granted as they become available.
*We have currently met our grade-level cap in 12th grade. New student applicants will be added to our waitlist in the order that they become sufficient.
Sixth through 12th grade students residing in New Mexico are eligible for enrollment.
