Academy at Rensselaer Educational Center

Welcome to The Academy at Rensselaer Educational Center!

I am Chris Martel, Principal of The Academy at Rensselaer Educational Center.  Our Academy is dedicated to offering all of our students opportunities for learning and growth, while attending to the unique learning needs of each individual student.   Our approach to doing so is to provide a small, nurturing environment in which our students can form meaningful and productive relationships with their teachers and peers.  We offer specially designed instruction in the core subject areas to 24 students from 9 different school districts across 3 counties, in grades 9-12.  Our goal is to provide all of our students with the foundation for becoming lifelong learners and to prepare them for further study and/or for finding meaningful and fulfilling employment.

Please feel free to contact me any time with questions or concerns.  I can be reached via email at, or via telephone at (518) 273-4264.  I look forward to working with your students, challenging them and helping them grow throughout the school year.
