Albany High lottery applications available

ALBANY, N.Y. (Oct. 15, 2015) -- Applications are available now for the lottery to determine placement in Albany High School's four academies for the 2016-17 school year.

 

Each of Albany High’s academies has its own unique theme: Citizenship, Discovery, Leadership and Innovation. These physically smaller learning environments are designed to help students feel connected, involved and engaged.

 

Students are assigned to each academy through a lottery. Students need to submit a lottery application to increase their chances of entering the academy of their choice.

 

The lottery is open to all incoming freshmen, new students and current Albany High students wishing to change academies.

 

Applications were mailed this week to the homes of current Albany eighth-graders; you also can download one here. Additional applications are available from your child’s guidance counselor and at Central Registration, located at 75 Watervliet Ave.

 

The deadline to apply is Nov. 20, and the lottery will be held Dec. 10.

              

The mission of the City School District of Albany is to educate and prepare all students for college and career, citizenship and life, in partnership with our diverse community. The district serves more than 9,000 students in 17 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.
