Albany High lottery applications available
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.
