About Philip Livingston Magnet Academy
Philip Livingston Magnet Academy served students as a junior high and middle school from 1932 until the end of the 2008-09 school year. Click here to read more about the graduation ceremonies for Livingston's final class of eighth-grade graduates on June 25, 2009.


The architecturally significant school continued to serve students as the home of the Tutorial Opportunity Program for Students (TOPS) and the Adult Learning Center, and as the headquarters of the district's Food Services operation, until the end of the 2009-10 school year. The school since has been closed permanently and is for sale.


In 2010, Albany voters approved a plan for the district to sell Livingston for no less than $4.5 million. In 2011, voters approved a second proposal to reduce the minimum selling price to $3.25 million. Please contact William Hogan, assistant superintendent for buisness affairs, at (518) 475-6020 if you would like to find out more about purchasing the historic property and its 14 acres of green space.


Tivoli Lakes Park, New York state's second-largest urban wildlife preserve, is located behind the building, providing access to an adjacent 82-acre nature preserve.


The building includes excellent athletic facilities, a library, a dance studio, a drama studio and an auditorium that seats 1,100. The auditorium once was used by the Albany Symphony as its practice hall.
