The overarching goal for every student is that he/she will reach his/her full academic potential. This goal requires that teachers have an excellent grasp of and passion for their subjects and are interested in understanding the unique needs of each of their students. Furthermore, this goal speaks to a willingness on the part of our teachers to find the appropriate level of materials to challenge all students according to their abilities and to provide effective instruments and avenues for all students to demonstrate what they have learned.  In return, students will be expected to put forth their best efforts, be fully engaged in the learning process, and take advantage of the academic resources available to them here at The Albany Academies.
