The Albuquerque Collegiate Difference:

Albuquerque Collegiate is built upon the best practices of high-performing, charter schools nationwide. These charter schools have a proven track record of academic success and have demonstrated that all students can succeed and graduate from competitive and demanding colleges.

  • 8:00am-3:15pm schedule (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday) and 8:00am-1:30pm schedule (Wednesday), which is an additional 298 minutes of instruction weekly, and equates to students earning the equivalent of 30+ additional instructional days over the course of the school year.

Low student-to-teacher ratio

  • 15:1 student-to-teacher ratio, with two teachers in all kindergarten through 2nd¬†grade classrooms

Prioritized and expanded focus on literacy and math
