Attention parents of eighth-graders!

Albany High academy lottery applications due Friday

Applications are due Friday for the lottery to determine placement in Albany High School's four academies for the 2015-16 school year. Click here to download one.

 

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

 

An application was mailed to the home of each current eighth-grader, and additional copies are available from guidance counselors 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 will be held Dec. 11.

 

About North Albany Academy
The former Public School 20 is the City School District of Albany’s only school serving students in prekindergarten through grade 8. Renovated in 2004-05, North Albany Academy enjoys a unique partnership with the adjoining North Albany YMCA, which provides the school’s students access to a pool, gym, track and a branch of the Albany Public Library.

 

The school is proud to be able to provide a range of programs and services to take care of children's academic needs and provide health and wellness services on-site. These services include mobile dental health services through a partnership with St. Peter's Hospital and Ronald McDonald House.

North Albany Academy faculty and staff provide a safe and welcoming environment for children and have high expectations for good behavior and academic success.
