Is a Charter School a Good Fit for Your Family?

If you are looking for a private school education at a public school price, look no further than 21st Century Public Academy, a charter elementary and middle school. 21st Century Public Academy was the first official Charter School in Albuquerque, opening its doors in 2000.

It is the mission of 21st Century Public Academy to continually search for positive learning experiences that enrich students and staff. Whenever possible, these lessons will take place in the arena in which they are practiced.

In addition to an emphasis on core curriculum, they also encourage learning experiences in the community, the city, and the state of New Mexico. Instruction takes place both inside the classroom and outside the classroom. They also offer two Associated Arts courses each semester, including music and media programs.

21st Century prides itself on its small class sizes, and students appreciate the frequent one-on-one time with their teachers. Parents appreciate frequent communications with the school and multiple opportunities to be involved in their child’s education.

21st Century has recently achieved a Spotlight School designation. This means that they are performing in the top 25% of schools in New Mexico.

The teachers meet weekly to develop a collaborative lesson plan and chart progress and assess needs within each subject area. Collaboration among teachers is critical to the educational philosophy at 21st Century.

Another highlight is that sports are offered for every grade level, including track and field, soccer, volleyball, cross country, tennis, flag football, and basketball. 21st Century has brand-new facilities, including a full-size gymnasium for their students to play in. Throughout the year, they host other events including a fall festival and talent show.

Does this sound like a good fit for you and your family? 21st Century Public Academy has an upcoming Open House on April 20, 2024, from 10:00 am until noon. They are located at 4300 Cutler Ave.

I encourage you to take a look and check out their new facilities. Go see for yourself all the incredible opportunities the school has to offer.
