Kaplan Career Academy holds inaugural graduation ceremony

The Kaplan Career Academy Class of 2013 received their certificates at a special moving up ceremony, held on Thursday, June 20, 2013 on the Kaplan campus located in New Windsor, NY.

NEW WINDSOR - The staff from Kaplan Career Academy, located at 623 Blooming Grove Turnpike in New Windsor, NY, conducted the school’s first graduation ceremony on Thursday.

Approximately 75 guests were in attendance for the special graduation event, including Mr. Kaplan and Ms. Frommer, both of whom are huge benefactors to the campus.

The graduates attended the Kaplan Career Academy from both the Newburgh Enlarged City School District and the Wappingers Falls school district. The students plan on furthering their education in the medical field.

Kaplan Career Academy officially opened its doors on January 30, 2012 to receive students with special needs from all over Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Sullivan, Ulster, and Westchester counties. These students face a variety of challenges - academically, behaviorally, and socially. These challenges were overcome by the graduate students as they completed a NYS-approved program entitling them to a true local high school diploma.

The school now provides academic services for 65 students and will begin to provide additional occupational experiences when the school returns to session this September.

Please contact Jason Gerard, the building principal, for answers to any questions or to set up appointments to come in and visit at 845-522-8460 or
