About our school

Four unique academies

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.


Career and Technical Education (CTE)

Albany High School's Abrooking Career and Technical Center offers 21st-century career and technical education (CTE) programming that ranges from students taking single classes in an area of interest to students completing a career pathway.

Learn more about our CTE offerings.


What all our academies offer

All the academies offer the same core classes in English, math, science and social studies, and students generally take those courses in the academy to which they are assigned. 

Also, students have the opportunity to take Albany High’s acclaimed Advanced Placement courses in all four academies. All students also may take courses from the International Baccalaureate program offered in Citizenship Academy. 

Honors, Special Education classes and English as a New Language classes are available in every academy. While all students will be assigned to an academy, they also can take part in Abrookin Career and Technical Center programs. 

Classes in physical education, band, orchestra, chorus, art and health include students from all academies.

Albany High School offers students a variety of academic experiences that can’t be found in other schools – options that can open doors to a wealth of college and career opportunities for all students.

The wealth of opportunities at Albany High extends beyond the school day with a selection of more than 50 afterschool clubs and activities.

Rebuilding Albany High

Construction is underway 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 as the district's enrollment grows.
