"The Albany Academy and Albany Academy for Girls are independent college-preparatory day schools, founded in 1813 and 1814, respectively. For 200 years, Albany and the surrounding area had been the political, business and social center of the upper Hudson and Mohawk valleys.
In 1979, The Albany Academy and Albany Academy for Girls began a Coordinate Program, in which Upper School students (11th and 12th graders) could cross-enroll in classes at both institutions, bringing together the advantages of co-ed and single-gender education.
The Lower and Middle Schools, and Grades 9 and 10, remain single-gender, based on strong gender research that supports this approach to education.
In 2005, the schools signed an affiliation agreement which formalized years of cooperative educational efforts on behalf of the two schools.
Today, The Albany Academy and Albany Academy for Girls are truly a community.
United across grade levels, across cultures and across campuses."
