Campaign for the Third Century

    • .

In April of 2020, The Albany Academies exceeded their Campaign for the Third Century five-year fundraising goal of $20 million, raising more than $24 million. Thanks to the generous support from donors—parents, alumni, alumnae, past parents, and grandparents—throughout the country and the world, the thousands of gifts supported many important initiatives, including: the Borisenok Family Science Center, the Michael B. Picotte Field House, the Schellenberger Alumni/ae Center, the James E. Poole Athletic Facility, The Stevens Center, the Auditorium, and many named endowed scholarships. Gifts raised for the Annual Fund were also part of the five-year campaign success.
