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 for each grade level for which there are more enrollment forms than seats available. Families of students accepted in the lottery will have until April 30th to accept their spot(s), and until June 1st to complete registration paperwork. 

Please contact us at (505) 539-5369 with questions regarding the application or enrollment process.


 Per state statute, enrollment preference is given to siblings of students already attending Altura Prep, and children of school staff members. Students who are already enrolled for a grade level are entered for the next school year when families submit re-enrollment forms. Families of currently enrolled students do not need to submit a new application each year. These are the only lottery preferences at Altura Prep.

For assistance with enrollment or translation services, please call 505-539-5369.
