The School of Dreams Academy is a New Mexico state authorized charter school, nationally  accredited through AdvancEd. School of Dreams Academy was recently rated nationally by niche.com, who nationally ranks public and private schools under the direction of Carnegie Mellon University. Niche.com was founded in 2002, providing students, families, and professionals with the best-in-class content and deep insight into big life decisions. Niche.com ranked SODA amongst the best charter high schools and college readiness programs in the country.


We offer quality, research-based core academic program enhanced by several virtual learning programs. As such, we have evolved from the concept of online learning programs (E2020 now Edgenuity and ALEKS) to one in which we use the repository of information (videos, primary sources, quizzes, tests, lectures, journals, etc) with support programs  and teacher created projects to create a blended module that fits our student’s diverse needs.


All students, including English Language Learners (ELL) and those requiring special education and related services, will have the benefit of an individualized learning plan designed to address their specific needs and to meet their individual goals within the learning spectrum.


The School of Dreams Academy does not discriminate against anyone on the basis of race, gender, national origin, ability level, or age.  The focus of the school is to enhance student achievement through a rigorous curriculum aligned with the common core standards and utilization of instruction in the arts, literacy, character education, and community involvement through various service learning opportunities.
