Registering your child for school is as easy as ABC
The City School District of Albany wants to make the school registration process as easy as possible for busy parents. We understand that it can be confusing trying to figure out which of the district's schools your child will attend.

 

To alleviate some of the confusion and help parents get all the information they need, and to assist in completing all the proper forms, the district operates a Central Registration Office where everything parents need is under one roof. Parents of elementary, middle and high school children should go to Central Registration to enroll their children in school. The office is located at 75 Watervliet Ave., off of Central Avenue near Westgate Plaza in the former Harriet Gibbons High School building.

 

You can call Central Registration for additional information at (518) 475-6125, and check out the Required Documents section to find out what you will need to register your child for school

 

School attendance zones

All students must be registered at Central Registration, but before you go you can search our list of school attendance zones to find out which elementary and middle school your child will attend based on where you live. To search for your school, click here to open the list of attendance zones and use "Ctrl-F" to search for your street name (e.g., First Street or Zoar Avenue).

 

Please note that the list does not include the district's three magnet elementary schools, which are enrolled each spring via lottery. Call the Magnet Schools Office for more information at (518) 475-6551.

 

Hours of Operation are from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
