An application will be mailed to the home of each current eighth-grader. After Nov. 1, additional applications will be available from your child's guidance counselor and at Central Registration, located at 75 Watervliet Ave.

 

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.

About Innovation Academy

The Innovation Academy theme focuses on science, technology, engineering and math -- or STEM. Albany High's science electives are offered in Innovation Academy and available to all students, as are Career and Technical Education programs in woodworking, carpentry, construction, car care and automotive technology, transportations systems, computer networking, electrical technology and home electronics. Career Explorations programs in engineering also are offered through Innovation Academy.

 

A unique feature of Innovation Academy is a mock clean room that simulates the lab associated with the University at Albany's College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE). Clean rooms are used in fields sensitive to environmental contamination, including semiconductor manufacturing, biotechnology and the life sciences.
