3 ... more opportunities for all students. Consistency and rigor throughout high school. The main goal in the transformation of Albany High School s academic structure is to motivate every student in an environment that challenges their intellect and nurtures their development. Dividing Albany High into four smaller learning communities will allow the school to provide the support and relationships that every student needs to succeed. Questions? Call Albany High School at , ext. 920 or 921, for more information. The process will begin even before students enter as freshmen. Incoming freshmen will have the opportunity to attend a week-long summer camp based on theme of their house. Additional summer programs also will help prepare eighth-grade graduates for high-school success. By September, each student will have an academic advisor that will follow the student s progress through senior year. Twice a month a teacher on each team will lead a freshman seminar to help students improve their study, note-taking, organizational and time-management skills. Each academy will provide the same core courses in math, English, science and social studies, as well as Health, Spanish 1 and Studio Art. Physical education, band, orchestra and chorus will include students from all four academies. All other elective courses will be grouped according to each academy s unique theme (see pages 4-7). However, no students will be limited in their choice of electives, with the option to choose from Albany High s full coursebook regardless of their academy assignment. All programs will be equally available to all students.
