The major goal of an interscholastic athletic program is the same as for any other educational program—to provide youth with the opportunity to develop to their maximum potential. In this case, the program provides for development of physical and mental skills through competitive athletics, which enhances students’ personal and social skills. Competitive athletics generates a pride in achievement; an appreciation of team effort, hard work, and fair play; respect for rules of the game; and respect for the abilities of others. It should be noted that participation in athletic activities is a PRIVILEGE offered to and earned by students. Students must meet high academic standards in order to be eligible to tryout and stay on teams throughout the season. **A GPA of 2.5 with no F's is required of all CCPS athletes.** This is a change from our past requirements, and is in line with changes made by the NMAA.
CCPS is a member of the New Mexico Activities Association and is currently classified as a 3A school as a member of District 6.

Students in grades 8-12 are eligible to participate in those sports. Additionally, our high school students can participate in coed soccer which competes in the Albuquerque Charter School League.
We also have middle school programs for students in grades 6-8 in boys and girls cross country, boys and girls basketball, track and field, and girls volleyball that compete in the Albuquerque Charter School League.
