Rebuilding Albany High School

Investing in our students. Investing in our community. Investing in our future.

Construction began in 2018 on a $179.9 million project to renovate and expand Albany High School. The project will add more than 250,000 square feet of new facilities and completely renovate the existing 378,000-square-foot complex. The project will expand the school's capacity to about 3,000 students; Albany High enrolls about 2,500 students currently and has run out of space to add new classrooms.

The project is being completed in phases. The remaining work–Phases 3b and 4–will be completed by the start of the 2025-26 school year.

Workforce Development

As a district, we are committed to helping City of Albany residents, and especially residents of color, acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to work on the Albany High rebuild, as well as other construction-related jobs throughout our community and region. We are also committed to helping minority- and woman-owned businesses enterprises (MWBEs) be positioned to take advantage of these opportunities.

Wth these goals in mind, we have developed a workforce development website, which we encourage you to visit.
