NY Grey Cadets Visit NYMA

The New York Grey Cadets are a community-based program out of the Bronx that
aims to promote the core values of self-discipline, trust, academic excellence,
respect, and responsibility within the school community. The program uses
military and liberal arts sciences to build student skills in leadership,
communication, academics, social emotional wellness, and self-efficacy. The
cadet activities include academic intervention, college visits, community service,
digital citizenship certification, emergency preparedness training, and a musical
band.

They had a great time visiting and learning more about our school and campus. Many thanks to SM Montes and Cadet Kaupyte for being great hosts!

Interfaith Candlelight Service

The Interfaith Candlelight Service is a traditional NYMA event that dates back more than a hundred years and brings the Corps of Cadets, faculty and staff, and parents together to mark the holidays in a way that celebrates the diversity on our campus.

The program yesterday evening included readings from Christian, Hebrew, Kwanzaa, and Muslim texts calling for peace on earth. In addition to the candle-lighting, we also sang traditional American Christmas carols including a beautiful rendition of “Man in the Mirror” sung by Cadet Noel Maldonado…

2018 Ring Hop

This past Saturday night was NYMA’s annual Ring Hop. This year it was hosted in the elegant Hudson Room at the West Point Club. All of the juniors, seniors, parents, and staff members in attendance had a great time.

The festivities were led by Dean of Academics, Maria Reeves, and included a presentation of the Colors by NYMA’s Color Guard, introductory remarks by Cadet Robin Zhao, a formal ring ceremony and recognition of upperclassmen led by Cadet Amanda Beller, and a speech by Superintendent Zhang. After the cake was cut everyone had fun on the dance floor thanks to DJ Lukose!
