Mission in Motion: Albuquerque Academy's Guiding Principles

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.

Charging Forward: School Spirit and Pride

The spirit of the Chargers resonates through the halls of Albuquerque Academy, where approximately 1150 students embrace a tradition of academic and personal excellence.  Dressed in the bold colors of black and red, students take pride in embodying the strength and determination that the Charger mascot symbolizes.

"Scientia ad Faciendum": Where Knowledge Transforms

Albuquerque Academy’s motto, “scientia ad faciendum,” translates to “knowledge for the sake of doing.”  This encapsulates the school’s philosophy of education, emphasizing action and application of knowledge.  The Academy’s educational program focuses on six fundamental academic disciplines:  English, history, mathematics, world languages, science, and performing and visual arts.  It’s a holistic approach that prepares students for the challenges of the future.

A Tapestry of Learning: Academic Disciplines and Beyond

Beyond the traditional subjects, Albuquerque Academy weaves a tapestry of learning that includes performing and visual arts.  The school’s commitment to a well-rounded education ensures that students not only excel in core academic disciplines, but also have opportunities to explore and showcase their talents in the arts.

Albuquerque Academy: Where Excellence is Tradition
