The Academy School is an alternative high school program that services the Buffalo City School District. It serves students who are suspended long-term from the district's other high schools, and is located at the sites that formerly housed Lincoln Academy and School 44. The current principals are Mr. Michael Mogavero, Mr. Elzie Fisher, and Mr. Nathaniel McCrea, and the current assistant principal is Mr. Rafael Mercado.

History Edit

For many years, Buffalo Alternative High School was located at 268 Oak Street in Buffalo, but was closed. The new alternative program began in 2006 and was operated through a firm called Resultech. That program was dissolved in 2008 due to backlash from administrators and students.

The school usually has two campuses, one at 1369 Broadway Street, and the other at 1409 East Delevan Avenue. Due to the fact that the East Deleven site is currently being used as the temporary site of E.C.C. 61, this satellite is now housed at 89 Clare Street in Buffalo.
