With the potential for our area to be impacted by the effects Hurricane Joaquin the City of Newport would like to take this opportunity to inform or remind residents of their ability to enroll in the City’s Mass Notification System, Code Red.

Recently, twelve local students aged 14-16, had the chance to showcase what they learned during a 6-week Summer Boatbuilding Program, a collaborative effort put on by the Rhode Island Marine Trades Association (RIMTA) and the Newport Area Career & Technical Center (NACTC).
The Volvo Ocean Race fleet has sailed away, leaving in its wake thousands of local youth with fresh exposure to the excitement of boating. A new boatbuilding program that launches this summer in Newport will give those young people who want to further their interest an opportunity to explore the marine trades as a potential career path.
The Newport Area Career and Technical Center (NACTC) kicks-off an informational campaign designed to inform the public about the different types of educational opportunities that are available to high school students and highlight the fact that all students in Newport and the surrounding districts have the right to attend NACTC at no additional cost to families.
