Explore Academy will be moving to its new location at 4001 Jefferson Plaza in the fall/winter of 2016. Prior to the completion of construction, we will be occupying 6900 Los Volcanes as our temporary space.
The innovation of the Explore Academy model is built on the principles of strong core education and college readiness through the philosophy of academic choice. The school's innovation is based on the premise that individuals best succeed when they are internally motivated through the power of personal choice, and that by offering a customized educational system where they can create their own curricular pathways, all students will show greater levels of success.
For the 2015-16 school year, Explore Academy earend an A rating with the State of New Mexico Public Education Department. Only 13% of high schools around the state earned an academic rating of an A.
In the area of PARCC testing, Explore Academy consistently beat both the state, APS, and national averages in all tested areas of reading, writing, and mathematics. See our PARCC scores overview (left column).
