At the forefront of an Albany Academy education are single-gender opportunities, experiential learning, and a strong Pre-K through Grade 12 community. At The Albany Academy, we provide an environment of mutual respect, understanding and feeling of belonging. There is a unique sense of community where our youngest and oldest students have opportunities to learn from each other.
Interaction between students of various ages gives boys a sense of being part of something larger than just their own grade and/or division. Through interactions in our student life programs, our boys attain valuable life skills such as sportsmanship, teamwork, group dynamics and group processes, self-discipline, perseverance and mutual respect while building lifelong friendships and having fun.
We provide a learning environment that meets the pedagogical needs of boys with a "blend at the end" offering coeducational classrooms for honors classes and Grades 11 & 12. Our faculty and staff are sensitive to the distinct social, emotional and educational needs of boys and girls, acknowledging that boys and girls learn at different rates and in different ways. Our rigorous programs provide the foundation for students to be successful in college and in life.
AA students stand and deliver! Tell me, I forget; show me, I remember; involve me, I understand. Making learning relevant to real-life experiences, providing opportunities for hands-on learning, emphasizing the value of off-campus, real-life experiences, and fostering an understanding, appreciation and respect for others through learning activities and community service is evident in our academic, arts, athletics and leadership programs.
We have developed a culture of excellence where students and faculty alike have high expectations for both learning and behavior. Whether in the classroom, music room or playing field, our students actively strive to reach their full potential. Our teachers know the students well, address individual learning styles and preferences, and assure that everyone receives instruction at their academic and developmental level.
We look forward to hearing from you.
With best wishes,
M. Scott Milliken
