Father James B. Hay Catholic School is accredited by the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement, a division of AdvancED and the state of New Mexico since the inception of non-public school accreditation in 1975. We provide a strong academic program that incorporates Catholic identity in all subject areas. Our curriculum is based on the Elementary Course of Study as prescribed by the Diocese of Las Cruces. It is aligned with national standards and the regulations of the New Mexico State Department of Education for non-public schools. Our academic program includes grades Pre-K through grade 5th. Each grade level incorporates content and activities that are developmentally appropriate.
