Albany Academies Bicentennial

Feb 24, 2014

   The Albany Academies -- Albany Academy for Girls & The Albany Academy -- are committed to developing the potential of the whole individual student by building a community that fosters scholarship, leadership, character, service and creativity. And they’ve been doing that for 200 years.

They are Preschool-Grade 12 independent college-preparatory single-gender schools that have been producing leaders of the Capital Region, the State of New York, and the world at large for 200 years. Now united into a single institution, the schools follow an innovative model of single-gender education from Pre-K through the Tenth Grade and a coordinate program in the final two years in preparation for college and beyond.

Today, the Albany Academy for Girls will have a Founder’s Day Celebration. Head of School, Doug North, joins us now to tell us more.
