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

Coxsackie-Athens High School is located on a beautifully historic campus, approximately a half an hour south of the city of Albany.  We are committed to providing each of our students with a world-class education that is focused on the needs of each of our young people as individuals.  

With just over 500 students and 70 faculty and staff, we offer relevant and rigorous programs of study that are truly aimed at preparing our students to be “career and college ready” in a 21st century context.  Our students, no matter their skills level, have access to pathways that will guarantee a successful outcome after graduation.

The young people on our campus are able to take advantage of numerous opportunities to earn college credit while still in high school, both through our AP programs as well as our active partnerships with SUNY Albany and Columbia Greene Community College.   Additionally, our expanding implementation of technology allows students access to a variety of mobile learning devices, such as iPads, within many courses on a soon-to-be wireless campus.  Students also are able to take advantage of a wide range of extracurricular and athletic opportunities.

At Coxsackie-Athens High School, our mission is to prepare “today’s youth for tomorrow’s possibilities.” and there are many new and exciting initiatives on the horizon.  We encourage you join us in this important work.  Please feel free to contact us at any time.
