Built in 1980, Kemnay Academy was initially created in response to a growing need for a secondary school to accommodate the growing number of pupils in Kintore and Kemnay who previously went to Inverurie Academy. After its construction, Kemnay Academy served the surrounding Kemnay and Kintore communities and their three feeder primary schools (Kintore Primary, Kemnay Primary, Aleshousewells Primary). At the turn of the century Kemnay Academy then began accepting pupils from the neighbouring Kinellar Primary School in Blackburn.
