The strength of a great independent school relies upon several factors -- challenging academics, outstanding faculty, dynamic students, excellent facilities, sound fiscal policies and a loyal base of alumni, alumnae, parents and friends.
As we look back on this past year at The Albany Academies, we are reminded of the dedicated members of our community who helped us have a very successful year. With your support we are able to provide resources for a variety of needs, such as financial assistance, technology and faculty development. This money will continue to enrich our programs and upgrade our facilities. It will also ensure that students can explore their interests and talents with an unparalleled degree of support. 

Albany Academy for Girls and The Albany Academy are made up of incredibly devoted parents, alumnae, alumni, students, faculty, staff and friends who share in our schools’ mission. Your contributions and generosity have enabled us to open doors and create opportunities for our students in order to be successful. As we welcome many new families into our community this year, we are grateful for everyone’s support. Our schools would not have succeeded the past 200 years without involved, caring, passionate families – just like those we have today.

As we continue to move forward in our efforts to assist more students, philanthropy and volunteerism are very important parts of the equation.

We hope to have your support again in the academic year as we continue to increase our communication efforts, develop our events and programs and expand our resources to engage all of our stakeholders. We look forward to seeing you and encourage you to call or email the Institutional Advancement team with your comments and feedback.
