Who We Are
At Sandia Preparatory School we provide remarkable opportunities for intellectual and personal growth within a challenging and balanced program for students in grades 6-12. Our innovative college prep curriculum readies students for success in college and beyond, and inspires each to find and achieve his or her purpose in the world.
As an independent school, Sandia Prep is free to let passionate teachers create rich educational experiences that meet each student's individual needs and to offer the academic and co-curricular programs that best serve our students.

Quote from the Head of School
  • Our College Counseling Department works one-on-one with students and their families beginning in the ninth grade.
  • We help your student find and be admitted to the best colleges and universities suited to his/her goals.
  • We help your student secure financial aid and scholarships for college.
  • After graduation, your graduate can count on Sandia Prep's assistance through college, graduate school, and career.

"Sandia Prep provided me a community within a school, a place where I have always felt safe. Within this community, there are many teachers who have taught me more than what is in the lesson plan. Teachers at Prep, like Ms. Moses, Ms. Shaw, and Ms. Goessl, went the extra mile to make sure their students were not only prepared for a test, but also equipped for life." - Julia ’19
Not just a campus, but a community: Our mission emphasizes the importance of parental involvement. At Prep, parental involvement is not only welcomed, it is encouraged. We are one SPS "family" - students, parents, and faculty focused on one goal: each student's success.
