About our school

Principal Rachel Stead posing for a photo with two students.At Albany International Center (AIC), students receive specialized instruction in English while they gain academic skills in the core subjects of math, science, social studies and English Language Arts. 

Once students strengthen their language skills, they’ll return to their assigned middle school or Albany High School.

Students also take required classes such as physical education and special area electives such as art. High school students earn credit toward graduation for the courses they take, all of which are aligned with state learning standards. 

All academic and social-emotional programming at AIC is designed to accommodate and respect the cultural backgrounds and values of students.

Here at AIC, as throughout the City School District of Albany, we believe our diversity is one of our greatest strengths.

Our program is considered transitional, meaning that it gives students the tools and literacy skills they need to return to middle or high school and succeed. The program also provides emotional support services to students learning to assimilate to a new culture.
