SVTOA runs a very nice program for novice drivers. I instruct for them at various venues across the country and we have many happy customers. Too bad you missed the annual SVTOA event at Summit Point on May 4th& 5th.
We'll be back the same weekend next year. There may be an SVTOA event at Nelson Ledges in late October or early November, but the details have not been worked out yet. The next SVTOA event is in Canada ehh, next weekend just across the border from Niagara Falls. (Only 426 miles from you according to Google.) Information can be found at http://www.svtoaontrack.ca/register/index.html
I would also recommend Car Guys; they run Summit Point and VIR. My first track event was with them at Summit Point in 1991.
Check out the local Porsche, Audi, and BMW clubs in the area as well. Most clubs offer some form of instruction and do not care about the make of car.

. They run two events at Watkins Glen each year. The next one is on August 20th & 21st but it has sold out. I fly or drive across country twice each year to instruct at that event. It is an awesome track and Joe Quaranto runs a very nice program.
Another choice is http://www.pdadrivingschool.com/;
they run at Pocono, Lime Rock and Watkins Glen. I have not run with them so I cannot vouch for their program.
