The two schools, each 200 years old have retained their separate identities and traditions. Students continue to receive a diploma from either AAG or AA. Together, however, the two schools have created an extraordinarily effective educational model: ten grades of single-gender education, followed by two final years of coeducational classes and co-curricular activities. As members of the Academy community, we acknowledge that our individual actions and attitudes affect the wellbeing of others as well as the school as a whole.

As we navigate a world that requires resilience, resourcefulness, and proactivity, our children will need to be guided by expert educators who are role models as well as masters of their subjects. The Albany Academies teach students to pursue a rigorous life guided by a strong sense of character and a commitment to improving the lives of others. Through a combination of academics, athletics, extracurriculars, and community life, our students will learn the importance of challenging themselves, collaborating with others, and learning from both successes and defeats.
