What We Do
New York Harbor School combines Traditional Academics with Career and Technical Education (CTE) to provide a unique college preparatory program built upon maritime experience.
"I went into this program thinking I was going to be learning things like ‘How fast does a fish swim?' But it’s more about learning how science works and how it affects the world. It’s taught me a lot of things that have gone far beyond just an academic environment.”
