Central School District

About the community

The Goshen Central School District is in the center of Orange County, New York, approximately 60 miles northwest of New York City. The district encompasses the entire Village of Goshen, plus portions of the Towns of Chester, Goshen, Hamptonburgh, Wallkill and Wawayanda. The school community is approximately 50 square miles in area and has a population of at least 23,000.

While many of our residents are employed by local industry and business, many also commute to large urban areas such as White Plains, Poughkeepsie and New York City. Substantial growth is predicted for our community as new housing is evidenced district-wide.

Churches, temples, civic associations, youth groups, service clubs and other community organizations speak for the vitality and interest of the residents of the district.

A beautiful and historic area, the school district has a mix of business, light industry, rural and residential areas. The village of Goshen is the County Seat and home to the Goshen Historic Track and the Hall of Fame of the Trotter. The entire area is an interesting blend of stately old homes, contemporary buildings, garden apartments, farms, and industrial parks. Orange Regional, a 176-bed hospital, is located in Goshen.

There is access to a variety of cultural activities, as well as excellent recreational opportunities, either within or near Orange County. Nearby colleges include Orange County Community College, Mount Saint Mary College and the State University at New Paltz. Marist College offers extension courses in the Village of Goshen. The United States Military Academy at West Point is located within a half-hour of the Goshen area. Eisenhower Hall and theaters in nearby Middletown and Sugar Loaf offer professional music, dance and theatrical productions throughout the year. Skiing, golf, tennis, swimming, boating and horseback riding are all nearby as are the Galleria Mall and the Woodbury Commons Shopping Village.

Orange County contains a network of major highways. Noteworthy is the triangle formed by New York Route 17, the Thruway and Interstate 84. These greatly facilitate travel in all directions. The George Washington Bridge can be reached via the Palisades Interstate Parkway and there is rail and bus commuter service to the metropolitan area. Regular passenger service via major airlines from Stewart National Airport in Newburgh has been serving the region for more than a decade.
