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.

In our ongoing effort to “go green”, this year, the high school will pilot the process of not mailing interim progress reports. Instead, when progress reports are ready to be viewed a Synervoice will be sent to all families and you will be able to access your child’s progress via the parent portal on schools. We do recognize that not all families have access to technology on a regular basis in the home. If you would like to continue receiving a paper mailing of progress reports, please complete the “opt in” form and have your child return it to Student Services. These forms are also available in the Student Services Office at the High School for students to pick up and bring home to you in order to be completed. Additionally, if you still need assistance with gaining access to the parent portal and your child’s progress, please contact our Technology Services department at email@example.com and they are always willing to help you.
