Program available to students throughout the region
Marina owners from the region are supporting the new Marine Academy being established at Ticonderoga High School in its newly-constructed, state-of-the-art technology center. Slated to open next September, the Marine Academy will be operated by Champlain Valley Tech and be available to students from Glens Halls to Plattsburgh. A two-year program, it will be limited to 13 students — and marina owners can’t wait until the first class graduates.
