Academic Academies

  • Baldwin Union Free School District is the only school district in New York State that offers a wide array of Academic Academies, beginning in grade 8 and continuing through grade 12. The Academic Academies take learning to an entirely new level by immersing students into a specific area of study. Education and learning occurs in a technology rich, small school environment, where our students work alongside professionals within a given field.
