  • Who We Are

    The Albany Academies—The Albany Academy and Albany Academy for Girls—develop capable and confident students through single-gender education in the Lower and Middle School, and through coordinate education in the Upper School.
  • What We Do

    Employing individualized and positive education, The Albany Academies provide students with the knowledge, skills, and character needed for leadership and success in the creative, entrepreneurial century that lies ahead.

Brief History

In 2007, two historic Albany schools, The Albany Academy and Albany Academy for Girls merged to form The Albany Academies. The two schools, each 200 years old have retained their separate identities and traditions. Students continue to receive a diploma from either AAG or AA. Together, however, the two schools have created an extraordinarily effective educational model: ten grades of single-gender education, followed by two final years of coeducational classes and co-curricular activities.

Code of Honor

As members of the Academy community, we acknowledge that our individual actions and attitudes affect the wellbeing of others as well as the school as a whole. We believe that our community must be built on trust and mutual respect which will encourage each member to reach his or her unique potential.

To this end, we will strive to foster the ideals of honesty, tolerance, and integrity both in ourselves and in others. We recognize that we must have the courage to support and affirm one another and to conduct ourselves with civility in all aspects of our lives. Through self-discipline, commitment, and mutual support, these goals of personal growth and pride in our school community will be achieved.
