Opened in 2004, Schuyler Achievement
Academy was one of the first projects completed in the
City School District of Albany’s sweeping plan to
rebuild or renovate all its elementary and middle
schools. This modern, award-winning facility is a blend
of the school most recently known as Opportunity School
21 and a new structure added to enlarge the school.
The school's "full-service"
model allows it to take care of
children’s academic needs as well as provide a range of
health and wellness services. These services include
mobile dental health services through our
partnership with St. Peter's Hospital and Ronald
McDonald House, and
school-based health services through our partnership
with Whitney M. Young Jr. Health Services, in addition
to mental health and other wellness services.
At the end of the 2015-16 school
year, Schuyler students created a video to tell the
world about their commitment to excellence.
