Announcement Regarding Fall 2020 Online Instruction
Hozho Academy is offering fully remote instruction to families who choose that option. Beginning September 21, 2020, Hozho Academy is offering hybrid in-person learning for grades K-5 with morning or afternoon sessions on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. On Wednesdays, teachers plan and post lessons for remote learners and staff clean/disinfect the school. We will continue to offer these two options as long as the Department of Health in conjunction with the Department of Education and the New Mexico Governor approve hybrid models for public schools or allow for full re-entry of all students.
The Governor’s Office and Public Education Department have not yet provided a date to begin in-person learning for 6th and 7th graders. Until a reentry date for our students is established, we will continue to provide remote instruction. Updates will be communicated with all families via email and posted here as well.

A Classical Approach
Hózhó Academy is committed to the tradition of a Classical education. We are committed to a rigorous program that will develop students who are educated in all of the liberal arts and sciences as well as in moral character and civic virtue. Our goal is to provide the best education possible which will permit a full understanding of all students’ cultures in the four corners area.
Virtuous Living – We raise our students in the core virtues of Compassion, Perserverance, Courage, Respect, Responsibility, Diligence, Temperance, and Integrity.
Civic Virtue– Our Students learn not only to excel in academics, but to excel in their communities and act for the Common Good of all.
Data Driven Results – Research has shown that students who experience a broad based curriculum versus one narrowed to merely reading and math skills perform better academically and are typically more successful students.
Hózhó Academy is a tuition free New Mexico Charter School that develops students in mind and character through a classical, content-rich curriculum that emphasizes the principles of virtuous living, traditional learning, and civic responsibility.
Hozho Academy may be moving into a new facility as early as August of 2020. Aequitas Education, a partner non-profit dedicated to bringing high quality classical education to the area, is in the process of acquiring and renovating an existing school facility to serve as the foundation of our permanent Hozho Academy campus.
Architects and builders have begun drafting designs, and we hope to have a Master Plan to show the public shortly. This is a very expensive endeavor, especially since we are committed to building the premier school campus in the region. Any assistance you can provide towards our permanent facility is greatly appreciated.
