For the 2019-2020 school year, we currently have a few openings in 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade.

These spots will remain open until the end of the school year for any student who wishes to transfer this school year. After the last day of school this semester (May 22, 2020), if there are any spots still available for the 20-21school year, we will post a Letter of Intent to Enroll form to this site. Parents may fill out the form and drop it off at the school (or email to principal@hozhoacademy.org). If more forms are submitted than spots available, we will conduct a lottery in July and award the available spots.

We will notify the public in the event that we open up additional sections of other grades.

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.

  • Traditional Learning– Our curriculum is based in Riggs PhonicsSingapore Math, and the Core Knowledge Sequence. Our program of study includes teaching rich content as well as the skills students need to become life-long learners.

  • 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.
