Academics

Albany Academy for Girls

Albany Academy for Girls was founded in 1814 on the then-revolutionary principle that girls and women are deserving and capable of higher education and socially engaged lives.

Today that same dedication to the education of girls as the leaders of tomorrow still thrives and animates the school. The world has changed much since 1814, but the goal of preparing girls for leadership remains the same. Today’s mission is to provide girls with the “knowledge, skills, and character needed for leadership and success in the creative, entrepreneurial century that lies ahead.”

Highly qualified faculty, small classes, high academic standards, and individual attention develop girls who are very ready to take on life with high expectations.
