About North Albany Academy
The former Public School 20 is the City School District of Albany’s only school serving students in prekindergarten through grade 8. Renovated in 2004-05, North Albany Academy enjoys a unique partnership with the adjoining North Albany YMCA, which provides the school’s students access to a pool, gym, track and a branch of the Albany Public Library.


The school is proud to be able to provide a range of programs and services to take care of children's academic needs and provide health and wellness services on-site. These services include mobile dental health services through a partnership with St. Peter's Hospital and Ronald McDonald House.

North Albany Academy faculty and staff provide a safe and welcoming environment for children and have high expectations for good behavior and academic success.
