When compared to towns in the southern half of Essex County, Ticonderoga actually performed relatively well over the past decades. Adjacent and nearby towns including Elizabethtown, Schroon, Essex, Crown Point, and Moriah all sustained more pronounced population loss. Ticonderoga’s fairly strong performance in this respect is likely the result of the town’s infrastructural assets and its many remaining employment opportunities.

No discussion of Ticonderoga’s demographics can be complete without mention of the Town’s seasonal residents. While the Census tracks only year-round permanent residents, the Town’s population does grow significantly during summer months thanks to seasonal residents. The Town’s 2006 Comprehensive Plan estimated that Ticonderoga’s summer seasonal resident population is around 900 people who own or rent second homes. Many of the Town’s seasonal homes are located on Lake George and Eagle Lake. Summer residents are drawn by the area’s views and beauty, and by recreational opportunities including hiking, boating, fishing, biking, hunting. A smaller number of winter residents and visitors enjoy snowmobiling and skiing.

Education

Ticonderoga Senior High School boasts a student to teacher ratio of 11.3:1.

In all subjects except for Physical Setting/Physics, at least 87% of students scored in the 55th percentile or higher on statewide Regents exams. Among 72 graduating seniors during the 2010-11 school year, 63 (88%) received a Regents Diploma, and 32 (44%) received a Regents Diploma with Advanced Designation. Of 62 seniors with known post-graduation plans, 51 reported that they would pursue post-secondary education. Meanwhile, the school reported only a 3% non-completion rate.
