Kilsyth Academy is a non-denominational six-year comprehensive co-educational school. It was established in the small, historic burgh of Kilsyth towards the end of the 19th century and moved to the present building in 1952.

The school serves the communities of Kilsyth, Banton, Campsie Glen, Haughead, Lennoxtown, Queenzieburn and Milton of Campsie.

The present building was designed by Sir Basil Spence in the 1930s and opened officially in 1954. An additional wing was built in 1964 and the school was extensively refurbished in 2006.
