CNM, APS Team to Open Early College High School on CNM Main Campus
CNM President Kathie Winograd, left, and Governor Susana Martinez announce plans for the new APS-CNM high school.
“This new APS-CNM school marks a new milestone for education in our community,” said CNM President Katharine Winograd. “It’s going to allow more students to get on a faster, cost-effective track to achieving their college and career dreams. We’re going to help them pursue their passions by providing educational pathways that lead them to higher education credentials and high-quality careers.”
The school, which will be named soon, will operate in the S Building on Main Campus. Students will spend half of the day in high school classes taught by APS teachers, then spend the other half of the day in CNM college classes. At the time students graduate with a high school diploma, they will also be expected to leave this new high school with a certificate, associate degree or enough college credits to enter a university as a junior.
CNM will offer students at the school with educational pathways that lead to high-quality jobs in the region.
Students at the school will take advantage of CNM’s longstanding Dual Credit program, which allows high school students to take CNM college-level classes that count for both high school and college credit. There is no cost to the student for tuition or textbooks, which can save thousands of dollars on a college education.
