Applications available for 2013-14 Albany High lottery

ALBANY, N.Y. (Oct. 15, 2012) – Applications are now available for the lottery that will determine academy placement at Albany High School for the 2013-14 school year.

 

Information booklets with applications have been mailed to all eighth-grade students and also are available in the guidance offices at the middle schools and Albany High. You can download a booklet in .pdf format, and you also can download an application by clicking on the highlighted text: in English or en Español.

 

Applications are due Nov. 19 and the lottery will be held Dec. 6.

  

Albany High has been transformed into four smaller schools, or academies, each with its own theme: Citizenship, Discovery, Leadership and Innovation. Students are assigned to each academy through a lottery they are encouraged to enter.

 

To apply for the lottery, students must complete a short application form that gives them the opportunity to decide which academy they would prefer to attend by ranking their first, second, third and fourth choices.

 

Every effort is made to give students their first or second choice; at the same time, the school works to assure the student body of each academy reflects the makeup of the entire school. Students who do not apply for the lottery by the application deadline are assigned randomly across the four academies.

 

The lottery is open to all incoming freshmen, other new students in any grade and current Albany High students wishing to change academies. Applications for the 2013-14 school year are due Nov. 19 and the lottery will be held Dec. 6. If you have any questions or would like additional information, please contact Magnet Grant Administrator Michele Bridgewater at 475-6340 or mbridgewater@albany.k12.ny.us.

 

The mission of the City School District of Albany is to educate and nurture all students to be responsible citizens, critical thinkers and lifelong learners to successfully compete in the global community by providing an academically rigorous and safe environment in partnership with parents, students and the community. The district serves about 8,600 students in 15 elementary, middle and high schools. In addition to neighborhood schools, the district includes several magnet schools and programs, as well as other innovative academic opportunities for students, including four themed academies at Albany High School.
