Welcome to Snowy Range Academy

Academic Excellence, Character Education, and Fairness for All

Snowy Range Academy (SRA) is a tuition-free kindergarten through 8th grade public charter school in Albany County School District #1. Our Core Knowledge charter school emphasizes academics, phonics-based Spalding Language Arts Instruction, accelerated Saxon Math, character education, and one of the most important, parental involvement.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. We are happy to provide you with information about our school and the excellent programs and services we offer our students. Go, Falcons!

    Message From Our Principal

    SRA Community, 

    The first quarter of the year is behind us, and I believe the SRA community has performed admirably considering our current circumstances. The resilience of our community has been remarkable. Students are working as hard as ever, parents are doing everything possible to support their children and our school, and our staff moves a mountain every day. Snowy Range Academy is a special place to be, and I am proud of all we have accomplished.

    Although much has changed concerning how we do things, we strive to maintain normalcy when possible. Our traditions and practices have shaped SRA, and we believe they should remain. Unfortunately, safe mitigation requires that we postpone or alter some of our practices and traditions. This does not mean they will not return as soon as possible. I long for the day when we can hold in-person assemblies and all share a room at one time.

    While we all yearn for a return to normal, we must prepare for the long haul we have left. As we continue to progress through the year, we will likely have to make adjustments due to changing realities. As this is our first time dealing with a situation such as this, we must continually evaluate our practices to ensure they are sustainable for all. We will always do our best to inform our community of any changes or needs we may have throughout the year. We appreciate the continued support of our school community and all you do for SRA.

    Have a wonderful November!

    Thank you,

    John R. Cowper
