Coxsackie-Athens High School
Preparing Today's Youth for Tomorrow's Possibilities

Coxsackie-Athens High School, with just over 450 students and 50 faculty and staff, is located approximately half an hour south of the city of Albany. Our small school atmosphere, quickly developing 21st century technological platform, and wide variety of unique programs merge to provide each of our students with a highly relevant and personalized learning experience aimed at preparing them to be  career and college ready within the context of TODAY’S world!

As we open the 2014-2015 school year, students have the opportunity to take advantage of over 30 college-credit bearing courses.  The incoming ninth grade is the first to work within a pilot “pathways” model, including one-to-one iPads and an interdisciplinary grade-level teamed approach, making instruction more student-centered, connected to the real world, and hands-on.  All students have access to “Power Lunches” with professionals from a variety of fields. Program opportunities have been greatly expanded via two Distance Learning labs, allowing students access to nearly a dozen new courses, including Mandarin Chinese and American Sign Language.  Our Math program starts this year with all required courses in the Advanced Regents sequence having extended instructional time.  Students who are struggling engage in extra help “labs” which are taught by a content-certified teacher.

At Coxsackie-Athens High School our mission is to prepare “today’s youth for tomorrow’s possibilities.”  Our goal is to make sure that each young person in our school has access to rigorous programs, as well as opportunities to explore the real world connections that make instruction relevant and engaging.   There are many new and innovative initiatives on the horizon.  We encourage you to join us in this important work.   Please feel free to contact us at any time.
