Campus Academy

SUNY Adirondack designed Campus Academy for high school and homeschooled students (juniors and seniors in high school or homeschooled students at equivalent levels) who wish to enroll in college courses at Queensbury, Saratoga or online. Students can choose courses for dual high school/college credit, or pick courses that interest them and align with future career or academic goals.

Juniors and seniors in high school who are pursuing the New York State High School Equivalency (HSE) diploma are also eligible for this program.

High school seniors, or homeschooled students at an equivalent level, can participate on either a full- or part-time basis. (High school juniors, or homeschooled students at an equivalent level, will be considered on a part-time basis only.)

All students must have a high school or homeschool program GPA of 80 percent or higher, as well as approval from a school counselor or homeschool program official. (In some cases, a guardian/caregiver may serve this role.)

Students have the ability to submit a request for a waiver of the above minimum requirements. Email for more information.

Students who want to take college-level English and math classes at SUNY Adirondack must meet certain requirements for entrance into these classes. Based on those requirements, Campus Academy students may have to take a placement exam.

SUNY Adirondack uses the Accuplacer placement tests to assess student readiness for English and math classes.

A Campus Academy program official will provide more information and further guidance during each student’s intake meeting.
