Attention parents of eighth-graders:

Albany High School lottery applications available

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 Oct. 13 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. 13, and the lottery will be held Dec. 10.
