Christian Brothers Academy is a private, Catholic college preparatory school in suburban Syracuse, New York run by the Brothers of the Christian Schools, founded by St. John Baptist de La Salle. Located within the Roman Catholic Diocese of Syracuse, the school has roughly 750 students in grades seven through twelve. It was founded in 1900 by the Christian Brothers, who still run the school, though most of the teachers are lay people. In 1960, it moved from its original site on Willow Street in Downtown Syracuse to its current location in suburban Dewitt on Randall Road.

The girls varsity Swimming and Diving team finished the 2009 season ranked number one in New York State.
