Albuquerque Public Schools has joined with the Central New Mexico Community College to operate a dual-credit school on the main CNM campus that allows students to complete their high school diploma while earning a college certificate, two-year degree or credits towards a bachelor's degree. College & Career High School is open to sophomores, juniors and seniors from across the Albuquerque community.

Why go to College & Career High?

  • The dual-credit school offers a rigorous curriculum with half of the day spent in high school classes and the other half in college classes.
  • Students are expected to graduate with a high school diploma and an associate's degree, college certificate or enough college credits to enter a university as a junior.
    • Credits earned at the new school will be transferable to universities and count toward a bachelor's degree.
  • No textbook costs
  • Conveniently located on the main CNM campus at 525 Buena Vista SE (map), so students can take high school and college-level classes at the same time
  • No tuition or textbook fees for college classes
  • The school expands school choices for APS students.
  • The school will follow the CNM trimester calendar, meaning students will be expected to take classes during the summer which will allow them to earn more college credits.
