How To Enroll
The Open Enrollment window is now closed. If the number of applications received during this time exceeded the number of available seats by grade level a lottery will be held. This will be determined during the March 22nd Governing Council meeting and seats will be given out by March 27th.
New student applications are still being accepted, and will be placed on a waitlist after all enrollment steps have been completed. Seats will be given out in order of completion once seats are available.
Students selected in the lottery will be required to complete the entire enrollment process to ensure they are approved to attend. Siblings of current students will be given preference in the lottery.
NMVA has an enrollment capacity of 500 students. Once the total number of approved students exceeds the number of available seats any further applications are placed on a waitlist, and seat offers will be granted as they become available.
Students in grades 6 through 12 residing in New Mexico are eligible for enrollment.
