Penn Foster is happy to be returning to the Career Colleges and Schools of Texas (CCST) Annual Conference for a second year. Held from November 9th - 11th in The Woodlands, TX, this three-day event gives career college administrators from Texas and surrounding states the opportunity to learn about a variety of industry issues and network with fellow postsecondary education leaders. This year's conference celebrates "Mission Possible: Driving Outstanding Career Education for the 21st Century," and will feature sessions on accreditation, government regulation, and admissions.

2015_Career_College_PrioritiesAs we learned from the results of our 2014 Career School Industry Report, the top two priorities for of career school administrators in 2015 were projected to be:

  1. Increasing enrollments
  2. Improving student retention

Given the themes of the breakout sessions at CCST, and the multitude of networking opportunities, we're excited to join the conversation to learn if these projections came to fruition. As one of the largest private high schools in the United States, Penn Foster is committed to helping career colleges achieve their enrollment and retention goals through our High School Completion program partnerships. Be sure to drop by booth #101 during all exhibit hours to learn more about how Penn Foster can help your school generate more qualified enrollments, and improve student outcomes.

We'll be giving away fun prizes throughout the conference, and even a $100 Amazon gift card to one lucky winner! You can also follow @Foster_EDU on Twitter using #CCST2015 to stay up-to-date on conference happenings and highlights.
