Things to Know:

Charter schools are public schools – Altura Preparatory School is a tuition-free elementary school open to all students.

Enrollment at Altura Prep:

Altura Prep has 66 seats per grade level. If we have more than 66 students who wish to join a given grade level, students are selected for each spot via a public lottery. 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.  

Steps to Enroll Your Child:

  1. Complete an enrollment form. Enrollment forms can be accessed via a secure online platform at, or in paper format. Please email or call 505-226-1925 to find out where to pick one up.
  2. If we have more than 66 enrollment forms for a specific grade level, we will hold a public lottery.
  3. If your student is one of the 66 chosen in the lottery, you will complete registration paperwork to enroll your child at Altura Prep for the upcoming 2019-20 school year.
  4. If your child is not one of the first 66 children, s/he will be given a number and placement on the grade’s waitlist. We will contact you as soon as a spot becomes available for your student.
  5. Once your registration paperwork is complete, your child is registered at Altura Prep for the upcoming school year! We will have uniform fittings and Meet and Greet Events over the summer for all Altura Prep students and families.
