Nora Cronin Presentation Academy (NCPA), a Catholic private middle school for girls of low-income families residing in the City of Newburgh, opened in September of 2006. With the opening of the school began a journey, an adventure, and a labor of love for all involved, as a dream, originially envisioned by a group of Sisters of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, became a reality.
The main goal of Nora Cronin Presentation Academy is to give girls a way out of poverty through education. By offering small class sizes and a dedicated and talented teaching staff, and by freeing parents of the great financial burden that comes with a private school, this dream has become a reality for so many. The students receive additional academic support through an Extended Day Program, a service which is also of great assistance to the working families from which the students come.
We have graduated 54 students to date. These students have gone on to attend the local public high school where they have participated in Honors programs, pre-nursing programs, and ROTC programs, to name a few, as well as to local private high schools such as Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic High School in Poughkeepsie and John S. Burke Catholic High School in Goshen with academic scholarships. In the spring of 2014, the first graduates of Nora Cronin Presentation Academy will achieve the dream of completing high school and entering college. Many of these students will be the first in their families to attend college.
We invite you to learn about us, visit our school, make an investment in our students, and help us to educate the girls of today to become tomorrow's leaders.
