Albany Academy (formerly Albany Science College and Albany High School) is a secondary school with academy status located on the south side of Chorley, Lancashire, England.

The school was originally opened as St. Alban's and was built on the former Yarrow House next to the river of the same name. The former house was the birthplace and childhood home of Titantic first mate Charles Lightoller. This has been commenerated by a blue plaque on the school gates and the renaming of the school's canteen to Lightollers.
