28 Newburgh Free Academy P-TECH Scholars Graduate from SUNY Orange
Last week, 28 Newburgh Free Academy P-TECH scholars graduated from SUNY Orange with their associate’s degree in Cyber Security or Networking. You can view a recording of their graduation here.
Newburgh Free Academy’s P-TECH program is modeled after a similar program in Brooklyn that started in 2011, and was part of the first cohort of grant awardees in New York State. There are now almost 40 P-TECH schools across NYS and over 200 P-TECH schools worldwide.
Beginning on day one of the program and lasting throughout their four years at Newburgh Free Academy North Campus, students work on professional skills such as communication, collaboration and analytic thinking that have been identified as keys to success in both college and career. The P-TECH Program at Newburgh Free Academy is a partnership with the Newburgh Enlarged City School District, SUNY Orange, and IBM. All students have mentors from IBM or Global Foundries who develop professional relationships allowing students to ask questions, network, and learn from professionals in the field of technology. Additionally, most students completed paid internships at IBM over the summer throughout the program.
This year's 28 students from Newburgh Free Academy P-TECH are listed below
