Rensselaer Academy

Dear Questar III Rensselaer Academy Families,

Here at Rensselaer Academy, our goal is to provide an environment filled with rigorous content and exciting lessons allowing our students to enjoy learning.  Students are challenged daily to grow both academically and emotionally, with support from all members of the school community.

Parents and families are important partners in the education of our students. You are the expert on your student and we here at Questar III value your input. The educational team is eager to have on going communication with families as well as parent-teacher meetings. Please contact the main office at 518-396-3520 if would like to schedule an appointment to discuss any concerns, ideas, or suggestions that you might have regarding your child’s education.

Our program runs from 7:50 a.m. – 1:50 p.m. and follows the Questar III calendar as well as the Rensselaer City School District calendar. In the event of an emergency closing or delay, “Questar III Rensselaer Academy” will be listed on all major stations or their websites as part of the school closing network. Families may also choose to be notified via our “school messenger” system. The information you send back to your child’s teacher on the emergency contact cards and other school forms will help us keep in contact with you.

As the school year progresses, additional information about our program, important dates (staff development days, vacations, etc.) will be sent home periodically. I, along with the entire RA staff look forward to the new school year and the opportunity to partner with you as we help your child maximize his or her potential.
