Nora Cronin Presentation Academy (NCPA) is a private Middle School for underserved girls in the City of Newburgh, NY. We foster education as a means to raise expectations for young girls in this drug and crime ridden small city in the Hudson Valley with the highest instance of teen pregnancy in New York State. Nora Cronin Presentation Academy provides a pathway out of poverty through education.
The cost of education is $10,000 per student. NCPA does not receive any federal, state or local grant funding. Additionally, it does not receive any funding from the Archdiocese of New York or any individual parish. The bulk of the cost of education is covered by fund raising and grants. Parents pay a nominal $50 per student and volunteer all maintenance services. All students meet the federal standards for free or reduced lunch programs.
The school has a charter from New York State, follows the requirements of the New York State Department of Education, and is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
We are funded by grants, donations, and gifts in Kind.
