School Name Albany Academies
City, State Albany, NY 
Posted 08/10/2017

The Albany Academies – Albany Academy for Girls & The Albany Academy – practice a leadership model of education combining individual attention to students with project-based learning and demanding academics. We also combine single-gender education through the 10th grade with a co-educational program for juniors and seniors. For more than 200 years, the Academies have led the way in the Capital Region.


In the pre-kindergarten through grade 8 years, The Albany Academy, a school for boys, instills leadership, creativity, and academic excellence.

  • An understanding of boys and how they best learn, develop, and stay filled with curiosity and confidence.
  • The ability to build and lead an interactive faculty team full of zest and savvy
  • A collaborative leadership style appropriate for a professional learning community.
  • An understanding of high academic standards and curriculum design, so as to supply the essential scaffolding of an Academies’ education.
  • An appreciation of project- and product-based education that leads ultimately to confidence and creativity, and prepares students as self-motivated learners for the Upper School.
  • A knowledge of the role of physical education in the pk-8 years.
  • The ability to coordinate with the Director of Lower and Middle Schools at Albany Academy for Girls in keeping with the mission of The Albany Academies.

If you fit this general description, we would like to hear from you. The position will be filled immediately.
