Capital Projects

Gifts supporting capital projects further enhance our 312-acre campus, which is truly an urban oasis. Our physical plant is responsible for the enormous task of maintaining our facilities and campus, and with the generosity of donors like you, have transformed the Academy into what it is today. 

Over the past year and a half, parking lot 5 has transformed from a tangle of overgrown juniper bushes and dying pine trees inundated with bugs, rodents, and trash to a pristine turf-covered space lined with eight specimen trees with the help from our grounds crew. These trees were all donated by generous donors like yourself. In May 2020, the natatorium received a massive facelift, including the installation of a new surface in both pools, a new pool deck, a new boiler, a new pool/water treatment system, new paint, new fire sprinklers, and a new roof. 

Without your support, none of this would have been possible. 

The Academy still needs your support as we look at what we can make possible for the future generations of Academy students and community members. Below you will find capital projects that you can choose to support:

Harper Stadium Initiative

Academy student-athletes gain lifelong lessons in the value of competition, perseverance, hard work, and the true meaning of teamwork. Physical and mental challenges in a team setting offer athletes the opportunity to develop leadership skills, self-confidence, and a commitment to others that will inspire them to lead productive and active lives. Renovating and enhancing our football/soccer/track stadium will support our student-athletes and energize the Charger community. Funding components include: $475,000 for the track, $250,000 for stadium lights, $200.000 for the Chargers Center, and $75,000 for a new scoreboard. Gifts of any amount can be designated to the Harper Stadium Complex project and in a person's honor or memory. Donors who give $15,000 or more will be recognized on a commemorative plaque in the updated complex. 

Bike Park

Experiential education, otherwise known as "Ex Ed" at the Academy, is best defined as learning by doing with reflection. Ex Ed has been a unique feature of the Academy since 1975 and includes programming in outdoor, environmental, and wilderness education, as well as leadership development. As the program has evolved, Albuquerque Academy has steadfastly maintained former Headmaster Ashby Harper's ideals that "The program is based on the conviction that students can learn in a rugged wilderness environment some of the important values which cannot be learned in the classroom." Mountain biking is one of the most popular courses taught by the Ex Ed department. Space formerly occupied by the alpine tower is being converted into a new bike park, comprised of bumps and berms, jumps and table-tops, flow trails, and structures to practice the technical skills used. The fun and educational new space will benefit Academy students. Funding will support the purchase of bikes, a storage shed to securely house the bikes, and bike park structures. 

Campus Beautification

Gifs for campus beautification help maintain our 312-acre campus and make physical plant enhancements possible so student can learn in an environment that provides athletics facilities, performance spaces, labs, and classrooms to accommodate the varying interests of our student body.
