The Albany Academy provides a comprehensive physical education program for students in Forms III-VI (Grades 9-12). The AA Physical Education program provides boys with basic to advanced principles that will enable them to take part in and enjoy a lifetime of sports and activities. This combined with fitness skills developing strength, flexibility, power, coordination and speed promotes a lifelong awareness of health and positive body image.
Physical Education in Forms III-VI is a four-year graduation requirement that seeks to promote the understanding and value of the importance of a healthy and well-conditioned body and mind throughout one’s life. This is done by introducing a variety of lifetime sports and activities that are challenging but fun. Discussions concerning goal setting, fitness, body image, and emotional and physical health are a part of the program.
Athletics at The Albany Academy strive to promote the challenge and discipline needed to compete at an advanced level. Boys who participate in athletics can truly learn to prepare, perform, commit and balance many demands that they face in their daily lives. In addition to developing a high degree of skill and fitness, students gain essential social and emotional qualities such as confidence, self respect and perseverance.
Academy students have access to an unmatched array of athletic facilities, including an indoor suspended track; two international squash courts; four gymnasiums; two fully equipped weight rooms; an aerobics room; an indoor swimming pool; indoor ice rink; six tennis courts; an all-weather 400-meter track; and acres of athletic fields.
