Online School Enrollment for the 2020–21 School Year

Open Application Period
Please note that New Mexico Connections Academy has an open application period from February 29, 2020 through  March 30, 2020. This is only the first portion of the enrollment process — you will not be able to complete the remainder of the process until after March 30, 2020. If a lottery is needed it will be held on April 22, 2020.

Enrollment is Limited
Per state law, the school has an enrollment limit of 1,300 students. If the number of applications accepted exceeds the limit, we use a lottery-style drawing to select students for enrollment. This means that your student(s) may still be subject to a lottery once the open enrollment period has ended. To be eligible for the lottery, please click “START NOW” and follow the steps to create an account and submit a valid proof of residency.

If the school does not exceed its enrollment limit, no lottery is required. You will then be able to continue enrolling your student.

More information will be available regarding next steps after March 30, 2020.
