At Excelsior Academy, our students are part of a six year P-Tech program in partnership with IBM, during which they receive both a high school diploma and an associate’s degree. Out of our inaugural class of fifty students, thirty seven students completed at least three college credits in their tenth grade year.
The core values of Excelsior Academy are Community, Intentionality and Trust. To this end, students at Excelsior regularly participate in volunteer activities in Newburgh and the greater Hudson Valley community. They have volunteered as hosts during yearly Hour of Code events, as support staff for the Special Olympics, as visitors to veterans in a local VA hospital, as coordinators for community cleanups, and as fundraisers and participants in a walk for our local Habitat for Humanity chapter, to name a few.
Here are some photos of our students at their best:
