Character Development

The Albany Academies—both of them--are over two hundred years old. During that time, obviously, the curriculum has changed with the times, but some central commitments of the two schools remain the same: the development of leadership abilities and character.
The Albany Academies—both of them--are over two hundred years old. During that time, obviously, the curriculum has changed with the times, but some central commitments of the two schools remain the same: the development of leadership abilities and character. An Academy Girl and an Academy Boy learn what is important in how you conduct yourself in life. There is a strong, central ethical code that is taught from the earliest years: how to be positive, how to respect yourself and others, how to be confident, how to be good.
 
The Academies teach qualities such as integrity, compassion, perseverance, and honor.
Education isn’t just about books and numbers. At the Academy we pride ourselves on the development of each student’s personal character. Service learning is woven into our programs because it is important to be aware of the world around us and to seek the betterment of society.
