About Our Program

Hudson Valley Pathways Academy (HVPA) provides an innovative and new learning environment to engage students who struggle in the traditional learning environment. The six-year program begins in Grade 9 and helps students whose college aspirations are at risk gain the education and skills needed for succeeding in the workforce.

HVPA is an Early College High School program located at the SUNY Ulster campus located in Stone Ridge. The program is modeled as a college-prep program that focuses on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM), combined with required credits in English Language Arts and Social Studies. Students graduate with both their high school diploma and an associate’s degree. 

Students choose a Network Administration/Computer Technology, Advanced Manufacturing, or Computer Science/Health Informatics program of study. Throughout the program, students work with industry partners to acquire the skills they need in the workplace. The Hudson Valley Pathways Academy program is designed to develop leadership, creativity, and self-direction. An intimate atmosphere supports every student. No one falls through the cracks.

Partnerships with industry provide many opportunities for internships, mentoring, and other real-world connections that enhance students’ job prospects. Industry partners pledge to consider Hudson Valley Pathways graduates over other applicants for available positions.
