Our Vision

JAG-NM believes we should be the go-to solution among New Mexico educators and policymakers for closing the equity gaps in education, graduating students most at risk of dropping out, and preparing graduates to thrive in college, career and life.

Our Mission

JAG-NM transforms communities, one student at a time, by re-engaging academically vulnerable high school students and preparing them to reach their potential through graduation and beyond.


JAG-NM places a highly trained teacher in every JAG classroom, whose job is to create a customized student experience that encompasses academic, social, and emotional support and preparation for college, career, and life through our community-based network.
