Albany School of Humanities

One of three themed magnet schools in the City School District of Albany, the mission of Albany School of Humanities (ASH) is to educate all students to be lifelong learners, capable decision-makers and positive contributors to their community. The humanities approach provides students with an overview of diverse cultures. Another focus of our magnet school is global citizenship. Students learn to be global citizens through service projects and learning about other cultures.
