  • Internship Opportunity for Students

    The NY State Senate Democrats are offering internship opportunities on many of our competitive State Senate elections this summer. As an intern, student responsibilities would primarily include managing volunteers in the office and volunteers who canvass, helping plan different events within the community and in schools, making phone calls to voters, and other office responsibilities that may come up. This is a wonderful opportunity for high school students to gain hands-on experience while working in a dynamic and fast-paced campaign. They have openings during the summer and in the fall.

  • June 2018 Exams - Important Information for Parents and Students

    We are just about a month away from the beginning of the June 2018 local and Regents exam weeks at the high school. This year, there is no instruction at the high school on Tuesday, June 5th so that we may administer the new transitional Global History Regents Exam from 8-11 am. On that day, only those students taking this exam should report to school. Transportation will be provided on both ends of this exam. Our last day of regular instruction for the high school will be on Friday, June 8th.

  •  Coxsackie-Athens High School

    ENGAGE, EMPOWER, ENABLE 
     
    There is no question that Coxsackie-Athens High School is quickly becoming a leader in our region when it comes to building a high school experience that breaks with outdated practice and brings to the forefront relevant opportunities that will truly prepare our graduates to be ready for today’s world. 

    This year, our students will have access to over 40 college-credit bearing courses, allowing for the completion of many, if not all, of the SUNY General Education requirements prior to high school graduation (at 1/3 the price).  Struggling learners have flexible access to Rti "extra help" labs taught by a content-certified teacher. Our Distance Learning Program, now running in three rooms all day, has expanded career pathways electives, giving our students access to over 20 new electives, including sequences in American Sign Language and Mandarin Chinese.  Internally, the talented faculty at C-A has created even more new electives.  

    We open this year as a fully 1-to-1 iPad high school, soon-to-be recognized as an Apple Distinguished School and currently 8th in the nation for the effective use of technology within instructional program for schools our size.  A student-run Tech Help Team will now provide support for this platform. Our transition to the Common Core in Mathematics is facilitated by the continuation of extended instructional time for all students in our Regents sequence courses.   While only in our second year as an official Project Lead the Way school, our new Robotics program is already winning competitions throughout the region, as are many of our amazing athletic teams.

    Our faculty and staff have set high performance targets for the upcoming year and will now work in both departmental and, for the first time ever, grade-level teams.  Teams will meet and collaborate each day, prior to the arrival of students, in order to focus on developing and implementing high-quality, interdisciplinary, and student-centered instruction, as well as to provide common interventions for students who are at-risk.
     
    Our success over the past few years, as well as in the years to come, is a result of the collective work of everyone in our school community.  We encourage you to become involved in any way that you can.   If there is anything that you or your child needs, please never hesitate to reach out. We look forward to another successful year working with you.
