The Albany Academy's Giving Cups

The purpose of Giving Cups is to create enthusiasm and competition among alumni classes, with the hope that the cups will instill a renewed sense of comraderie and nostalgia, ownership and pride, and a deeper, more meaningful connection to the school. At a time in Academy’s history where growth has come in leaps and bounds, greater alumni support is vital to maintain a positive trajectory into our third century as a leading academic institution.
