Welcome to South Valley Academy

We are a college-preparatory public charter middle and high school in Albuquerque, NM, serving grades 6-12. The vision of South Valley Academy was born of its founders’ experience in working with students who could excel in many endeavors—when given the proper learning environment, community support, and access to educational opportunities. School founders, Governing Council members, and the faculty have retained a steadfast commitment to the original vision and have been persistent in pursuing the school’s goals. They planned and implemented an academic program that prepared students for college while simultaneously reinforcing service to address needs of this community. High academics have been achieved through integrated curriculum, supplemented with student-developed personal learning plans for success.  


Our Mission:

We prepare young people to become independent, lifelong learners who are ready for college, career, and civic engagement.
