Alleged hazing incident was factor in closing of NYMA


Last graduation is on June 5

CORNWALL-ON-HUDSON – The economy, low enrollment and an alleged hazing incident of the early 2000s were factors that led to the closing of New York Military Academy, school officials said Thursday.

The military prep school in Cornwall-on-Hudson announced days ago that at the end of this academic year, the facility will end its 121 year history.

The school Thursday said a combination of factors resulted in the decision to close it down, including the recession making it difficult for parents to afford tuition; the publicity surrounding an alleged hazing incident in the early 2000s and reduced alumni pledges.

Graduation for the last senior class will take place on June 5.
