The new high school, which is located on CNM’s Main Campus, provides students with a curriculum that focuses on dual credit opportunities, allowing students to graduate from high school with a CNM certificate, associate degree or enough college credits to enter a university as a junior

Students 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. CNM will also offer students at the school educational pathways that lead to high-quality jobs in the region.

CNM’s longstanding Dual Credit program 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.
