There are 99 spots available in the front "tennis court/softball lot" for current La Cueva Class of 2025 students. These spots are the reserved/painted parking spots.  Because these spots are in demand, we will be holding a lottery drawing to decide who gets a reserved/painted spot - as well as the spot number.The entry form (see link below) will remain open until June 28th at 4:00pm.

Those selected via lottery draw will be notified by July 3rd of their spot number and will have until July 17th to accept their spot which includes paying a $40 fee for the spot and submitting their design for approval (see below for requirements). The students selected will be given instructions on how to do this on July 3rd.
If you are not selected in the reserved/painted parking spot lottery, there will be a separate lottery for the other general parking spaces.

College Checklists

If you are looking for a checklist to see what you can be doing from now until graduation, take a look at these sites.

Researching Colleges

The College Board's BigFuture website is a great way to start your college search.

College Research Worksheet

Below is a link for a generic College Research Worksheet. I encourage you to make a copy of it and change it to make it your own. For instance, you can add a section or delete a question to list what is important to you. It is often hard to remember what each college offers when you are researching and it helps to write it down as you go.


We recommend that students plan to take their ACT or SAT in the spring of their junior year. All schools across the nation accept either the ACT or SAT so it is your choice which one you want to take. You will need to sign up on your own. If you are on Free or Reduced Price Lunch you can get a fee waiver from the Counseling Office.
