About Science Academies of New York | SANY

SANY offers the best aspects of public and private education. As a New York State certified public charter school, SANY's tuition-free program provides the small classes and college preparatory programs of a private academy to students who would otherwise be financially constrained to attend public school.

Students are given the opportunity to learn and grow into productive, conscientious citizens with a keen sense of social awareness and community responsibility.

Faculty and administrators work diligently to provide a complete and unique secondary education to a culturally diverse student body. In a world of constantly changing educational and technological needs, the Science Academies of New York Charter Schools, boldly and with innovation, prepare today’s youth for the challenges of tomorrow. –

Who do we serve?


SANY encompasses three charter schools across central New York: the Syracuse Academy of Science, the Utica Academy of Science, and the Syracuse Academy of Science and Citizenship. We are a public charter school, and all students eligible to enroll in public schools in New York State are eligible to enroll. If the number of eligible applications for admission exceeds the spaces available for scholars, a publicly audited lottery will be held.

SANY Parent Testimonial

"A lot of people can get book smarts anywhere. What's important though are the intangibles."
-Chris Petrilli, Citizenship Academy Parent

We asked a SANY parent a few simple questions about our school and were absolutely blown away by the answers. Take a second to watch our second parent testimonial and hopefully learn a little more about what the Citizenship Academy is all about.

How do we connect with parents?


Students’ success and performance are affected not only by teachers, but also by their parents and environment. Therefore, parental involvement is a significant part of our school’s strategic goals. The school’s teachers perform home visits to understand the students’ problems and abilities and to create a better triad of parent-student-teacher relationships.

What makes us special?

What makes working at a SANY school special? It could be our average student to teacher ratio of 13:1, classrooms equipped with modern technology, or maybe there is just some magic in the air around here. 

Take a moment to apply today, and see the magic for yourself.
