The ASL Academy is built upon serving three important entities: the child, the family, and the community. Until now, this all-encompassing school has been an unattainable dream for many teachers, parents, and children.

 

We encourage you to learn more about how our inventive charter school is transforming deaf education to better serve children and their families.

The ASL Academy is now accepting lottery applications for grades K-12 for the upcoming school year. Spaces are limited.

 

Parents of deaf/hard of hearing children are encouraged to contact our office to schedule a tour. Our dual-language program offers an innovative educational option for the greater Albuquerque area that is supportive and respectful  of families.

 

 

The ASL Academy provides an innovative, dual-language, non-institutional educational model which is inclusive of all children and respectful of the family unit.

 

The ASL Academy welcomes, encourages and educates all deaf children - including those with multiple disabilities - in an accepting and compassionate environment.

 

Students attending the ASL Academy do not need to meet any admission or eligibility requirements and do not need to have hearing loss as their primary disability.

As the leader in deaf education reform in New Mexico, the ASL Academy continues to pursue options which will enrich the lives of our students with special needs. In this endeavor we are thrilled to announce our partnership with Dr. Gil Noam and the P.E.A.R. Institute (a collaboration between Harvard Medical School and the McLean Hospital).  

 

Dr. Noam's insightful Clover Model assists with the design of programs which ensure children are healthier mentally, emotionally, and academically.

 

This innovative assessment tool will further the ASL Academy's mission to support the social and emotional well-being of all students so that they may reach their full academic potential.

 

Thank you to Dr. Noam and his team for imagining the possibilities with us!
