Summer Session III Kicks Off

This past Sunday our third session of our Summer Leadership Program began. After dinner some campers chose to unpack and settle down while others decided to play some basketball. Yesterday everyone had a very busy first day full of activities.

The day started with orientation and drill and was followed by a leadership class, survival course, and sports. After a very delicious BBQ dinner, the campers enjoyed a special presentation by LTC Jones from the U.S. Military Academy.

New Early College and Postgraduate Programs

We are excited to announce that we are in the process of reviewing applications for our brand new Early College and Postgraduate Programs at NYMA for September and January.

Our integrated academic programs allow scholars the opportunity to earn up to two years’ worth of college credit in a disciplined, structured, and safe environment. Several classes are taught by college faculty, many of whom hold Ph.D.’s in their field of study. During this yearlong study, scholars also participate in school-wide outings, academic events, SAT prep, and special field trips that are not offered to the general community.

The Early College Program is open to exceptional 11th and 12th graders enrolled at NYMA while the Postgraduate Program is open to recent high school graduates seeking to boost their college application while taking a gap year. Partial scholarships are available for day or boarding options.

For more information or to apply, please reach out to our Program Coordinator, Lydia Chan, at lchan@nyma.org.

Summer Session II Begins

Our Summer Leadership Program Session II got officially under way this week.  On Sunday campers enjoyed their first meal together and then took part in an ice-breaker activity called speed-friending.

Monday was the first full day of camp and it started off with a breakfast formation followed by orientation, a campus tour, drill and ceremonies, leadership and robotics lessons, sports, and a special leadership presentation by LTC Jones from the U.S. Military Academy.

Tuesday all of our participants spent the day at West Point. The day began with a three-hour Leader Reaction Course. On the course each obstacle presented a unique physical and mental challenge that required squads to plan and execute under a time limit. After having lunch onsite, our students had a two-hour campus tour provided by professional West Point tour guides.

Summer Program in Session

The first session of our Summer Leadership Program has begun! Cadets arrived with their families this past Sunday and have already settled in. They were greeted by our staff and spent some time meeting each other and moving into their new rooms.

Yesterday morning the cadets were addressed by the Superintendent who went over the schedule for the week. Despite the brutally hot weather, we have successfully completed all morning and afternoon activities so far. Yesterday evening the participants heard a special leadership presentation by LTC (R) Dave Jones from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.

New at NYMA

This month we have begun an energy conservation project in conjunction with Central Hudson Gas and Electric and Lime Energy. We hope to save 10 gigawatt hours of electricity over the next 7 years with all new lighting fixtures installed at no cost. One benefit is some of our halls and classrooms have an updated, brighter look…
