Academics

The Albany Academy

The Albany Academy was founded over 200 years ago with the purpose of educating and developing the leadership capabilities of young men.



Today’s mission is very contemporary: to provide boys with the “knowledge, skills, and character needed for leadership and success in the creative, entrepreneurial century that lies ahead."

Faculty members know their students and appreciate them. They challenge them and give them the hours of support that help the boys rise to levels of accomplishment they themselves did not know possible. Highly qualified teachers, small classes, high academic standards, and individual attention develop boys who are very ready to take on life with high expectations.

  • 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.
