Albus actually found out he would be put in Slytherin before the sorting ceremony in 2017.

The year before, when Harry had made his annual trip to Hogwarts to guest speak in the DADA class, he allowed Albus to come with him. While they were there, James came up with a scheme to get his little brother sorted before his time. Albus was hesitant but agreed in the end. So that night while Harry was fast asleep in one of the castle’s guestrooms, Albus grabbed his invisibility cloak and joined up with James and Fred. After a string of events, which involved Fred causing mischief where he knew he would get caught, him then being taken to the headmaster’s office (with James and Albus following under the invisibility cloak), and the two brothers waiting in the corner until the office was clear again, Albus found himself with the worn hat over his ears and blocking his vision. Although slightly disgruntled, the hat was amused so did go through with sorting Albus, and after some pondering, told him that it thought he belonged in Slytherin.

Albus was horror-struck. When his brother eagerly asked him what house he had been sorted into, he didn’t reply. Even after constant pestering, Albus refused to tell him. James felt cheated, after all it was he who had orchestrated the whole thing, he had a right to know the results! “I bet the reason you’re not telling me is because you were put in Slytherin!” It was meant as a jab, something to provoke Albus into telling him otherwise and revealing his true sorting; James had no idea how correct he was.

The “joke” continued all throughout that following summer. Albus desperately tried to get James to stop by crying out insistently that he wasn’t. And every time James teased him about it he became more afraid that this was how he was going to be treated by all of his family when they found out in September. He would sometimes casually bring up the topic of Slytherin when he dared to see how different people in his family responded, but got varied and ambiguous results.

When September 1st finally arrived, Albus thought his pounding heart was going to burst out of his chest. 
James was at it again, teasing him relentlessly about a truth he thought he had invented. Al felt better when he saw Rose. Naturally, he had told her, as best friends they told each other everything. At least she was ok with it, and she had said he was silly to think everybody else would be different. He knew that his parents would still love him, but would they treat him differently? And although James’ was bound to tease him something awful when he found out that he actually WAS Slytherin, to be honest it wasn’t going to be much different than the way he already teased him. But still, he knew about all of the Death Eaters who had come from that house, EVERYBODY knew about the Death Eaters who had come from that house; they had caused so much death and pain.
The train whistle blew. 
It was getting harder for Albus to breathe again. He had to know, he couldn’t keep in the question that had been tormenting his mind any longer. “What if I’m in Slytherin,” he whispered feebly to his father. 
Harrt crouched down to look him in the eyes. Albus met his gaze with their shared green eyes but his hands were shaking. “Albus Severus, you were named after two headmasters of Hogwarts. One of them was a Slytherin and he was probably the bravest man I ever knew.”
Albus shook his head slightly. This was not the answer he wanted. Parents always beat around the bush and avoided answering the question directly when talking to children, he didn’t know why. But he couldn’t accept it today. He 
needed to know what was going to happen. “But just say-“
"Then Slytherin House will have gained an excellent student, won’t it? It doesn’t matter to us, Al." It felt like a balloon had popped in Albus’ chest and he couldn’t hold back the smile. But his father was still talking. "-But if it matters to you, you’ll be able to choose Gryffindor over Slytherin. The Sorting Hate takes your choice into account."
"Really?" Albus said in shock, this was certainly a new aspect he hadn’t anticipated and now he had a choice to make. But he was still feeling warm about what his father had said about accepting him even if he was a Slytherin and he rushed to wrap his arms around him and whisper a "thanks." Maybe it wouldn’t be so bad to be put in Slytherin if his father was ok with it.
