College and Career Pathways 2018-19
                             Albany High School offers a wealth of courses to meet the needs and interests of our students. In the pages that follow, we have organized these
2018-2019 Course Offerings

                             courses into college and career pathways to assist students in selecting classes that fit their current interests and their future college and career
                             aspirations.
                             It is critical that students and their families understand that students are not locked into one pathway. You may be a student who excels in English
                             but has to work a little harder in science. So you may take an honors or AP pathway for your English classes, but opt for a Regents pathway for
                             your science classes. What is important is that you select the classes and pathways that will prepare you to be ready for the college or career of your
                             choice.
                             Take a careful look at all the offerings summarized by pathway over the next few pages and then work with your family to complete your College
                             and Career Pathways Worksheet (see page 66) in preparation for your annual scheduling meeting with your guidance counselor.

RECOMMENDATIONS
• All students are invited to participate in the art program
• Students interested in careers in fine art, commercial art, industrial design, architecture, photography or media are encouraged to take a five-
  credit visual arts sequence including electives in areas of career interest.
• Students interested in studying fine art, fashion design and illustration, architecture, photography or graphic art at the college level are encour-
  aged to develop a competitive admissions portfolio from any advanced art courses for those colleges that require a portfolio as part of their
  admissions process. 632 AP 2-D Design, 612.1 AP 3-D Design and 647 Art Portfolio Development are two courses designed to offer advanced
  art students opportunity to develop art portfolios for college admission and art career readiness.
