Southern New Mexico Prep


In its pursuit of excellence, Southern NM Prep School inspires ambitious students to love and respect higher learning, to serve their communities passionately, and to lead meaningful lives as citizens of a global society.

We live our Mission through our Core Values



We hold ourselves to the highest academic standards by placing the highest value on academic rigor. Every pupil is given the opportunity to realize their potential, and students accomplish what may initially have seemed impossible. Passionate and talented teachers “Teach them to Reach” by promoting independent thinking, problem-solving, and continual growth.


An excellent education carries an obligation to self, family, and community. From the service to others, empathy, honesty, integrity, and good citizenship are at the core of The Southern Prep experience.


Successful education requires a three-way partnership between students, teachers, and parents. Families are welcomed to campus as active participants in a school community forged around a shared appreciation for the transformative power of a top-flight educational experience.


Our strengths are all different, and our differences are our greatest strengths. Students and teachers value the unique qualities of each individual as vital to the shared educational experience.


Education is a journey, not a destination. We allow students to explore athletics, arts, speech & debate, and other extracurricular activities as central parts of their educational experience. At Southern, students develop a love of learning by having the chance to learn what they love.
