Lottery Policy & Procedures

Education Options


At DATA, a tuition-free charter school in Albuquerque, students have the opportunity to earn full high school diplomas in small classroom settings. At DATA, average enrollment is only 250-300 students for grades 9-12, and the student to teacher ratio is 20:1 (lower in freshman classes). Our curriculum is carefully constructed by our instructors to ensure that common core standards are met, while providing frequent cross-curricular opportunities. Our elective programs are designed to prepare students for the rigors of collegiate technical courses.


DATA also offers a Half Day Online for those who learn best in an online environment or who are not able to attend earlier in the day due to extenuating circumstances. Half Day Online hours are 12:30 pm to 4:30 pm, Monday through Thursday; and students use the state-approved E2020 online curriculum to complete the courses they need for graduation. With diligent effort, students are able to complete courses early, if they choose to do so.


DATA also offers distance-learning opportunities for students who are in need of credit recovery and who may be enrolled full-time at another school via online courses taught through the state-approved E2020 online curriculum. In this program, students may work independently at home or at DATA during Afternoon School hours. Online classes must be completed by DATA’s deadline, or by home high school’s deadline, whichever is first. Tuition cost is $180 per half credit/semester class, and payment must be made at DATA in cash, personal check, cashier’s check, or money order. Register at the school between 9:30 am and 3:00 pm.
