, N.Y. — SUNY Orange will kick off its revitalized presence in Port Jervis this spring by offering four evening classes.

Two first-year college-level courses are set to begin March 6, and two accelerated skills classes will commence in early April.

The classes are the first to be offered as part of a collaborative effort between Orange County, the City of Port Jervis, and SUNY Orange to expand the college’s presence in western Orange County and to bring post-secondary academic opportunities and workforce development programming to the area. The four spring courses will be presented at Port Jervis High School while the finishing touches are being put on renovations to a building at 150 Pike St. in Port Jervis. It is expected that the college’s summer offerings, when announced, will be delivered at the Pike Street location.

The first-year college courses that begin at Port Jervis High School on March 6 include Introduction to Business (Monday and Wednesday, 5-7:45 p.m.) and Elementary Algebra (Tuesday and Thursday, 6-8:45 p.m.).

The accelerated skills courses beginning in early April include Developmental Algebra (Tuesday and Thursday, 6-9 p.m., starting April 3) and Basic Writing Skills 2 (Monday and Wednesday, 6-9 p.m., beginning April 9). The Developmental Algebra and Basic Writing Skills 2 courses are being offered to prepare students to be ready for upcoming general education courses planned for Port Jervis this summer.

“These initial courses are designed to help students take their first step toward a college degree, or allow them to ease back into the classroom if they’ve been away for a while,” says Dr. Kristine Young, SUNY Orange president. “For those who may be interested in these four offerings, or might be thinking about joining us in Port Jervis this summer, I encourage them to contact a College representative. Our advisors will be able to help determine how our classes in Port Jervis can fit into their college plans.”
