About Abrookin
Career and technical education have a long, successful history in the City School District of Albany, going back to at least 1914. The building at 99 Kent St. opened in 1974 as the Albany Occupational Center. The school was renamed Abrookin Career and Technical Center in 1994 in honor of the late Emanuel "Manny" Abrookin, a longtime Albany school board member, a career-education advocate and a 2013 inductee into the City School District of Albany Hall of Fame.

  • Career education for students in grades 9-12.
