Open House

The Albany Academies have been preparing students for college and leadership for over 200 years. In that time the definition of “preparatory” has changed and will continue to change. Today, we are educating in new ways for the creative, entrepreneurial century that lies ahead. Soft skills such as leadership, collaboration, creative-thinking and adaptability will be critical for success. Many of these skills have been hallmarks of an Academy education.

We are now employing new methods to teach these skills combined with traditional academics and individual mentoring; these are the features of a complete education. We hope you will visit our campus to observe our teaching methods, meet some of our students and faculty members and learn about the endless opportunities at our schools. 

Prospective students and parents are invited to learn more about our school at our Open House. This program includes presentations by students, teachers and administrators as well as tours of our campuses. The date of our 2015-16 Open House is:

Sunday, November 6, 2016 - 1:00 - 3:00 PM

Mirror programs will take place on each campus; please join us in either the lobby of The Albany Academy or Albany Academy for Girls. RSVPs are welcome but not required.

Student Visit Day

We invite prospective students going into Grades 3 - 12 to spend a day visiting our campus. We will match your child with one of our current students to attend classes, meet our teachers and to have lunch in our Dining & Events Center or Buttery.

Student visits can be scheduled during the school year or during a scheduled Student Visit Week.
