There are 500 students in high school and 500 in junior college. NMMI is known as the “West Point” of the Southwest and provides a superior education in a structured military setting.Tennis at NMMI is taken very seriously and both the high school team (State champs three of the last four years) and the junior college team (consistent top 10 JC national ranking) play a tough schedule. Many players work their way through NMMI tennis programs to earn a scholarship to a four year school. With this in mind the Institute is eager to network with all coaches.

HIGH SCHOOL. NMMI has one of the best high school teams in the state of New Mexico. The Colts have won the state tournament three of the last four years and five of the last ten. During this ten year period, NMMI has never finished lower than fourth. Many of the Colt players earn scholarships to play with the NMMI Broncos (JC team).
