Nora Cronin Presentation Academy (NCPA) Celebrating 10 Years of Educational Excellence and Success! Educating girls to become tomorrow's leaders.Nora Cronin Presentation Academy is a private middle school for minority girls from low-income families in the City of Newburgh and the Hudson Valley. Our goal is to break the cycle of poverty through education, while instilling in our students a sense of self and place in the community.
Utilizing English language immersion as well as an extended day (8am-5pm) and year (11 months), our primary mission is to give our students a way out of poverty through education. During the school year, early intervention and mentoring provide our students with role models of successful women from a variety of professions, while our graduate support program continues to mentor our students through high school and into college.
