Principal's Message

Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students,

I hope you all had a wonderful and restful summer. We are just a few days into the school year, and things are doing well. Students and teachers are settling into the program, and we are achieving much and having fun along the way.

Just to remind you of upcoming important items, please see the list below:

- If you child is a day student, in this mailing is the Free and Reduced Lunch Form.It is extremely important that this form is completed and returned to us in the envelope we provided.We give your child lunch every day, free of charge. If we do not get these completed forms sent back to us, we won’t get funding and will lose the ability to provide lunch for your child.
- Please contact the school (845) 522-8460 to update your contact information, home phone, cell phone, email address, etc. In case of a closing, delayed opening or school emergency, our ability to contact you depends on the reliability of the information you give to us.
- It is extremely important that you forward us copies of your child’s immunizations and most recent physicals.This year the state added the Meningococcal conjugate vaccine.Please check with your doctor to make sure your child is properly immunized for school.

 We had a wonderful graduation ceremony at the end of the last school year, with a great group of students moving onto the next stage of their lives, whether it be college, work or the military. It was great to see so many people come out to support these deserving young adults. Kaplan still carries an impressive success rate, light years above the average for our population, fueled by the hard work and dedication of its students, teachers, clinicians, school monitors and support staff.

We have a lot to look forward to in the coming school year as Kaplan Career Academy continues its growth to better serve the changing needs of our students and the changing demands of NYS Education. There will be new programs, new teachers, and new classes. New vocational, transitional and internship programs are beginning this upcoming school year as we strive to better prepare our students for life beyond high school.

It is a very exciting time here at Kaplan Career Academy. Keep checking our website at for changes. Please feel free to contact the school if you have any questions or comments. We are all looking forward to the new school year and hope you will join us and help us provide your child with the supportive and well-rounded learning environment Kaplan is famous for.

Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year.

Thank you,

Mr. Jay Posephney
