Lottery Process

Cottonwood Classical Preparatory School is a public state charter that abides by the New Mexico Public Education Department’s lottery regulations http://www.ped.state.nm.us/ped/CharterSchoolsIndex.html and offers a free liberal arts educational choice to students. Our International Baccalaureate pre-university curriculum is academically rigorous while still addressing the student as a whole—intellectually, socially, emotionally, and physically. We offer smaller class sizes and a dynamic, interactive curriculum following the Paideia principles and pedagogy. One of our guiding principles is that young adults learn by actively engaging subject matters with projects and Socratic discussions. Instead of passively accepting information in a typical lecture format, our classrooms are organized to be learning laboratories where students use their natural curiosities to experiment, discuss and create. As a part of this learning environment, students read classical texts and ponder the issues relevant to their lives and society and becoming active participants in the global community.
