The Albany Academies

135 Academy Rd, Albany, NY 12208

After operating as separate boys' and girls' institutions for nearly two centuries, The Albany Academy and Albany Academy for Girls effected a merger in the summer of 2007. AAG's campus is at 140 Academy Rd., across the street from AA. The two schools retained their names under the combined institution, and the single-gender tradition continues with the school's coordinate program in grades PS-10. Boys and girls complete their high school years with coeducational classes in grades 11 and 12; in earlier grades, only honors courses are coed. Single-gender classes account for differences in learning styles between boys and girls. The joint curriculum provides a full complement of Advanced Placement courses and electives. All upper school students participate in a leadership program, while also performing eight cumulative hours of required community service in grades 9 and 10 and 12 total hours in grades 11 and 12. Although the school does not offer a residential program, some international pupils live with area host families.
