The Albany Academies Reviews

46 reviews

I like the closeness of the school. The community, and as cliche as it sounds, the "sisterhood" between your classmates. While the community within the classroom is great, I feel as those there is almost a hierarchy. It's a small school. There are people who attend whose families have been attending for generations or those who have money to donate and also those who have connections. There is usually some level of distinction between those people and the ones who may just be regular or maybe even attending on a scholarship. That is one thing that I'd like to see change you know the inequality in certain situations but then again I guess that is just life.

The Albany Academies is a college prep school, so the college app process is very thorough. I feel completely prepared for college and I know that if I have any questions, I can go to any of my teachers or advisors. The sports are well recognized, so being a student who plays sports, I was happy, but I have heard from the art students that there is not enough representation and they were pretty unhappy with the arts experience, although there is a pretty good theatre program.
Best overall private school in the Albany area for boys and girls based on academics, athletics, school culture, college prep, clubs, student engagement and parent involvement. Although it’s not perfect, every school has areas for improvement. Most teachers are above and beyond outstanding but there are some exceptions. School had a family environment and looks after students’ best interests.
