First Ever AOS Students Attend University!

Posted on: October 10, 2018

In the history of Albany Options School (AOS) no student has been accepted to a four-year university, much less gone on to attend one. But AOS is all about “Why Nots?” Last Spring AOS had five students accepted into four-year universities with three currently attending Western Oregon University (the other two are attending LBCC). These three girls are first-generation college students in their families, and two of them were classified as homeless students. The three girls are majoring in Psychology, Criminal Justice, and Pre-Nursing.

Las tres jóvenes se especializarán en Psicología, Justicia Criminal y Pre-Enfermería.
