Welcome to The Albany Academies!

Educational Philosophy

Dr. Milliken’s educational philosophy includes three main facets: social justice, the whole-child experience, and transformative education. Ultimately, his philosophy begins and ends with knowing and understanding each student. Areas of focus must include academic readiness, emotional and social competency, personality, interests, and motives. Actively considering the whole child allows for a truly transformative experience that values the individual in a just, inclusive, and equitable manner.
