The New Mexico State Department of Education has designed a lottery system that requires charter schools to hold an open enrollment procedure.
Once you have completed the initial Enrollment application, your name will be placed on a list for enrollment. Each school year, we accept up to 75 students for incoming 6th grade. Other grade levels, 7th-11th student s will be accepted based on number of spaces available. At the first of every month, we will hold a lottery drawing and students on the wait list will be put into a random lottery draw. Every subsequent first day of each month we will hold lottery drawings until we are full. The remaining students will be placed on a waiting list and called when a space opens.
Priorities for Enrollment
NACA approves transfers according to a lottery selection process. The following priorities apply to the enrollment process:
- Returning students (i.e, students already attending NACA)
- Siblings of current students (depending on space availability)
- Students whose names are drawn from the lottery, until all slots are filled
Once a student is accepted and given notice, you will need the following documents to register:
- Child’s birth certificate
- Child’s updated vaccination records
- Documentation of Tribal Affiliation/CIB (if applicable)
- Copy of HS transcripts for all schools attended for 9th-11th grades
- Student Records from former schools e.g. test scores, Special Education services, transcripts
Prospective High School Students: Please attach updated high school transcripts (if possible). If no transcripts, a formal request will be made to the last school attended. Once transcripts are received, a formal credit review will be conducted and a credit summary will be created to see how many credits earned thus far and grade level classification at NACA.
