Cony High School (now Cony School) is a state-of-the-art, high-tech educational facility that incorporates many green, sustainable technologies. The four learning communities and sports and fine art facilities rotate around a central public food court that provides access to computer labs, the library, social services, and general administration, as well as the main entry and lobby.
Connections between the new school and the adjacent 1970s Capital Area Technical Center allow both to function independently while allowing students to cross over and take advantage of both curriculums. There is no duplication of resources, curriculum, teachers, or equipment, resulting in a highly efficient building and educational program.
