Las Cruces Academy

Las Cruces is a small, private K–12 school for gifted and academically advanced students that emphasizes science, math and language arts (English, Chinese, & Spanish) while also having complete coverage of the liberal arts and social sciences. The academy provides a nurturing environment with small class size and supportive teachers. Because the academy is based on educational excellence via well-educated teachers, even elementary grade students will be taught by several teachers. Our experience indicates that very young students are capable of learning at a much higher level than is generally provided.

Cooperative teaching and small class size allow children to surge ahead in their areas of strength and interest while being supported and guided in other areas, both academic and social. While academic excellence is of primary importance, the academy considers the emotional and social development of the students to be critical. It is essential that the children learn to form strong, healthy relationships with both other children and adults. They should come to understand the importance of trust, cooperation and caring to build and maintain these relationships. Our goal is to produce very well-educated, caring, open-minded citizens who will become leaders in their local communities and the world.

The Academy is centrally located at 212 S. Downtown Mall. During the 2009–2010 school year, students in grades K–4 are being enrolled and 1 to 2 additional grade levels will be added each additional year.

Mesilla Valley Christian Schools

Mesilla Valley Christian Schools (MVCS) offers half- and full-day kindergarten and elementary, middle and high school classes.

Mission Statement—The purpose of MVCS is to assist parents in their God-given responsibility to train their children to become disciples of Christ, serving our Savior daily in every aspect of life.

MVCS is one of the finest private accredited K–12 schools in southern New Mexico with an uncompromising commitment to high academic standards. Our Christian education offers a disciplined, safe and nurturing environment. MVCS is a non-denominational and theologically conservative K–12 Christian school serving the Mesilla Valley since 1974. It is the school of choice for almost 500 students.

MVCS is one of only a few private schools in the state to earn accreditation privileges through three accreditation agencies—Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI), the State of New Mexico and the North Central Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement.

The seven-acre campus features spacious classroom buildings, an art/drama building and an elementary lunchroom/daycare building. Included in these facilities are a choir and band room, library, up-to-date computer lab, gymnasium, snack bar, middle and high school science labs and three administrative offices. To accommodate future growth, the school is planning for a new 15-acre high school south of the current campus.

We are a leader among private schools because of our combination of academic excellence, fine arts offerings, strong athletic programs and a sincere desire to honor God. We offer many activities: a wide variety of ACSI and local academic competitions, band, drama, basketball, volleyball, cross country, golf, cheerleading, vocal/choir/instrumental competitions and art classes for grades 6-12.
