Las Cruces Academy
Founded in 2007 as a private school, we offer classes from early kindergarten to 8th grade. We are noted for our advanced academics, small class sizes, a diverse student body, cultural enrichment, and community outreach. See more about how we stand out.
We’re so proud of our students for their great national test scores coming right out of our own curriculum!

Our 10th Annual Fund is rolling.
We share our goals, monetary and aspirational, with our LCA families, friends, Board, and corporate friends. Twenty-five LCA families have donated gladly, along with Board members, friends, and corporate matching programs. The Fund is used toward accreditation and a capital fund, and we have made recent investments in improving our programs. One notable purchase is a set of high-quality chimes on the diatonic scale for music teaching. Find out more about our matching fund! We now are registered as well with Benevity.com for corporate matching donations and with Cocatalyst.org for stock donations.
