Albany High lottery applications available for 2015-16

Applications are available online for the lottery to determine placement in Albany High School's four academies for the 2015-16 school year.

 

Click here to download one.

 

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.

 

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

 

The deadline to apply is Nov. 21, and the lottery will be held Dec. 11.

 

About Leadership Academy
The Leadership Academy theme focuses on civil and social responsibilities. Albany High's social studies and foreign language electives are offered in Leadership Academy (except Spanish 1, which is offered in all four academies) and are available to all students. So are Career and Technical Education programs in health services and occupations, nursing, emergency medical technician training, early childhood education and adolescent psychology, and Career Explorations programs in health and education.

 

A unique feature of Leadership Academy is a large-group instruction room designed to simulate the General Assembly Room at the United Nations. Students will use the U.N. Room for international debates, multimedia presentations, guest presentations and research.
