Coxsackie is an area "on the move" and, as such, is proving attractive to various new commercial ventures. A new business and technology park hosts major distribution centers for the Save-a-Lot grocery corporation, Empire Merchants wine and spirits, Essendix office supplies and Ferguson Plumbing as well as a production center for Serta Mattress. Other new businesses are also emerging in the Coxsackie and Athens area, which is becoming an increasingly attractive destination for vacation travelers as well as for those seeking to relocate. A wide variety of housing, from historic Victorians to contemporary chalets can be found throughout this 75+ square miles encompassed by the school district.
The Coxsackie-Athens Central School District enrolls approximately 1400 students in grades K-12.

Arthur Elementary School, also a K-4 building, is in the Village of Athens. The district boasts outstanding facilities and will be embarking on a $16 million renovation in the next three years.
Technology is the backbone of much contemporary learning, and the Coxsackie-Athens Central School District offers a technology infrastructure which supports many innovative initiatives. The district offers each student in grades 7-12 with a mobile device and many classrooms are now paperless. Students have access to additional courses via three distance learning labs.
