Thank you for considering Southwest Preparatory for your student! There are 3 steps to our admissions process:

Step 1: Letter of Intent

Students are admitted to Southwest Preparatory through a lottery process. To begin the admission process and participate in the lottery, please submit an electronic Letter of Intent below.

After the fall semester, all new letters of intent received will be placed into the lottery pool for the subsequent year. Letters turned in after the end of the fall semester will be placed on a waiting list in the order they are received.

Step 2: Registration Part 1

If your student’s name is drawn, Congratulations! You will receive an email that will provide you with a link and a “snap code” to register when you have been drawn. You can use the snap code to register by clicking on the link in your email.

Step 3: Registration Part 2

After registering online, a meeting will be set up with your “Sponsor Teacher” to go over everything you need to know about attending Southwest Preparatory. We look forward to meeting you!

The Fine Print

Southwest Preparatory enrollment policies prohibit discrimination based on 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 Preparatory 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 an electronic Letter of Intent as students are not guaranteed a position in the new school and must go through the lottery process.
