Develop qualified, confident, motivated students that persist and succeed

Prospective students lacking proof of graduation can earn a regionally and nationally accredited Penn Foster High School diploma on your campus and a path to matriculate into college towards their career.

By providing students in our communities an opportunity to earn a high school diploma, we’re removing that barrier and helping them achieve life success.
Mike Maise, Blue Cliff College
Nonprofit Organizations

Create more productive, prosperous communities through knowledge and skill

Workforce boards, foundations, and youth organization are re-engaging community members with Penn Foster's affordable diploma, certificate and degree programs and cultivate a skilled, productive workforce.

We're proud to see many of graduates pursue higher ed, become valued members of the workforce and be leaders in their communities.
Jonathan Leslie, The Institute for Workforce Innovation

Attract, retain and grow high potential employees

With store-level employee turnover more challenging and expensive than ever, hospitality, restaurant, and retail brands are investing in affordable education and development programs from Penn Foster.

Laying the foundation for our employees to reach integral milestones and harness their potential will serve to both enrich their lives personally and strengthen our brand as a whole.

Keep students engaged & improve graduation rates

Public & private high schools and school districts are offering Penn Foster's flexible, affordable programs and individual courses including Dropout Retrieval, Credit Recovery, and Summer School to help students graduate and prepare for their next step.

Empower young people with knowledge, skills and confidence
