About Sheridan Preparatory Academy
The newly constructed Sheridan Preparatory Academy opened its doors in September 2004. The school is part of the City School District of Albany's comprehensive facilities plan to create smaller, more personal learning spaces where students have the technology necessary to succeed.

 

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 a school-based health center through the Whitney M. Young Health Center and a mobile dental health services program through a partnership with St. Peter's Hospital and Ronald McDonald House.
