WILTON, N.Y. -- Mount McGregor Prison in Wilton is scheduled to close next year. However, the closure is forcing Siena College to move its inmate education program.
According to the college's academic coordinator, the college is working to move the program to Greene State Prison in Coxsackie. Siena College is working with Hudson Link for Higher Education, and is hoping to offer the program in the spring.
A program for college students, and a pre-college program will both be offered.
Mount McGregor is one of four state prisons expected to close by next summer.
