About Randolph Academy Union Free School District
Randolph Academy Union Free School District is a Special Act Public School District established by the New York State Legislature on June 4, 1985. Randolph Academy is one of eight such Special Act school districts created to educate students from the state’s private residential child care institutions.
Originally established in the 1950s as the Randolph Common School District #11 on the grounds of Randolph Children’s Home, Randolph Academy evolved into its current form by also receiving day students who need a special or alternative school program to achieve academic and behavioral success.
Randolph and the surrounding communities offer real estate at a variety of price points and several area attractions within a short drive for golfing, hunting, fishing, canoeing, snowmobiling, skiing, culture, and higher education – Holiday Valley Resort and Tubing Company, Allegany State Park, the Chautauqua Institution, Chautauqua Lake, St. Bonaventure University, Houghton College, a robust Amish community, and various snowmobile clubs.
In 2011, the Academy expanded its borders to include the former Hopevale U.F.S.D. at its Hamburg location. Today, each campus serves up to 100 stud...ents. The Randolph Campus educates students who reside at New Directions Youth and Family Services Randolph Residential Program and day students from surrounding public school districts. Day students from the Buffalo metro area comprise the entire population at the Randolph Academy Hamburg Campus.
Day students are referred to Randolph Academy by local district Committees on Special Education. Students are also admitted from all over New York State, many of whom are placed residentially at the Randolph Campus by districts in the New York City metro area and Long Island.Tuition is regulated by the New York State Education Department, and is reimbursable to the referring district through the private excess cost aid formula.
As a public school district, Randolph Academy is governed by a seven member Board of Education. Per New York State Education Law, the Board of Trustees of New Directions Youth and Family Services, Inc. (the governing body that operates the Randolph Residential Program) appoints five members to three-year terms, and the New York State Commissioner of Education appoints two members to four-year terms. The Randolph Academy Board of Education functions as any other Board of Education in accordance with New York State Education Law.
