Our mission in the HGE department is to provide the highest quality education to the
citizens of Dutchess County and the Mid-Hudson Valley.
We strive to educate the traditional high school graduate as well as the non-traditional
returning student. Our goal is to educate students to be intellectually curious, analytical
problem-solvers, valuable to employers and the community. Our goal is to graduate
students who will be immediately employable in the geographic region as well as to
solidly prepare those students who wish to transfer to a four-year college or university.
