The Albany Academies

  • "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.".
