Albany High School is a comprehensive high school that serves about 2,500 students. With students from more than 40 countries and rich academic programming, Albany High’s halls, classes and culture reflect the richness of a world-class university setting.


Albany High features four smaller learning communities, or academies -- CitizenshipDiscoveryInnovation and Leadership. Each academy offers the same core courses in English, math, science and social studies, and electives are grouped in relation to each academy's unique theme. However, all students are able to choose electives outside of their academy, selecting from the full scope of Albany High's rich and diverse course offerings.
