Altura Preparatory School is public and tuition-free. We welcome everyone to attend and there are no admissions requirements. The Altura Prep enrollment period falls between November and April. An open, public lottery will be held on the second Friday in April, every year. Families of students accepted in the lottery will have until April 30th to accept their spot(s), and until July 15th to complete registration paperwork. 

Please contact us today at (505) 539-5369 with questions regarding the application or enrollment process. If you are interested in attending an Information Session, please visit our Calendar of Events. We look forward to meeting you!

Students who are already enrolled for a grade level are entered for the next school year. There is no need to re-apply each year.

Students who have a sibling already attending Altura Prep have a lottery preference. This is the only lottery preference we have at Altura Prep.
