Ogdensburg Free Academy is a public high school in northern New York State. It consists of around 750 or more students in the 7th through 12th grade. The famous Golden Dome is located on State Street and attracts residents from across the North Country. Ogdensburg Free Adademy is home to the Van Dusen track meet, one of the oldest sporting events in New York history. Every year, the Ogdensburg Boys and Girls Club of America hosts an 'Expo' where companies (such as the local church or car selling company) can get the most advertisement. Also there are performances (such as the local dance studio or choir) in the Golden Dome.

Pete Gogolak, the first soccer-style placekicker in American professional football, and his younger brother Charlie, who also became a professional football placekicker, both attended Ogdensburg Free Academy and played their first football games there.
