About Citizenship Academy

Citizenship Academy's themes are cultural awareness and multiculturalism. Global awareness is an understanding of concepts that affect our world: namely, environmental, social, cultural, political and economic relations. Students in Citizenship Academy are provided the skills to navigate and embrace cultural differences. Applying the knowledge of global and cultural perspectives prepares students for academic professional and social success as productive global citizens.

 

Albany High's upper-level classes in social studies and foreign language are offered in Citizenship Academy and available to all students.

 

Also, Citizenship Academy is particularly relevant to students considering taking part in the International Baccalaureate program. In addition, Citizenship Academy is home to the Smart Scholars Early College High School program, where juniors become Hudson Valley Community College freshmen and are dually enrolled in college and high school.

 

Albany High's Online Success Program (OSP)

It is with enthusiasm and commitment to academic improvement that Albany High School presents a unique and unprecedented opportunity for students to enroll in the Online Success Program (OSP).

 

OSP provides students a chance to recover course credit and seat time from previous marking periods. As educators, we believe in the importance of what we teach, but mostly, we believe in who we teach. This opportunity will allow educators, parents and students to enter a contract that, if upheld, will allow students to earn back course credit, and ultimately, improve academic achievement. Visit our OSP section to find out more.

 

Upcoming events

  • Monday, July 8-Monday, Aug. 12 -- High School Summer School  8 a.m.- 12:25 p.m. Breakfast and lunch are included, and so is transportation. Please note that the program will be held at William S. Hackett Middle School due to construction at Albany High School.
