New Student Application

Southwest Secondary Learning Center enrollment policies prohibit discrimination on the basis of disability, race, creed, color, gender, national origin, religion, or need for special education services.

As per New Mexico State statute the lottery will be governed by the following guidelines:

1. If a student is chosen in one of the school’s lotteries and there is a sibling who is eligible to attend that same school, the sibling will be given preference for the following school year.

2. Students selected to enroll in Southwest Preparatory or Southwest Secondary Learning Center will be able to re-enroll for the following school year in the same school, provided the family has completed and returned by the deadline a “Letter of Intent to Return” and the student is in good standing at the school.

3. Parents interested in moving their child to one of the other schools must complete a New Student Application. Students are not guaranteed a position in the new school and must go through the lotter process.
