Albuquerque Collegiate Charter School
Located in Albuquerque's South Valley, Albuquerque Collegiate Charter School believes that college preparation begins in kindergarten. The school is designed to provide a structured, supportive environment that offers high-quality instruction to all students with an expanded focus on literacy and mathematics.
Albuquerque Collegiate Charter School was founded by Albuquerque native Jade Rivera, who participated in the prestigious Building Excellent Schools (BES) Fellowship, which trains strong leaders to build and launch a high-achieving school that responds to the needs of its community.
Excellent Schools New Mexico provided funding to support Ms. Rivera's BES Fellowship and provided start-up capital to help launch Albuquerque Collegiate Charter School. In its first year, Albuquerque Collegiate Charter School was a NMPED designated "Spotlight School" and ranked among the top ten percent of all New Mexico public schools in reading proficiency, reading proficiency growth, and family satisfaction.
