We want to open our New Year’s message by sincerely thanking you for being a part of the Penn Foster Family. Whether 2009 was your first year with us or you’ve been with us for several years, we are grateful to all of you for choosing Penn Foster to help you reach your educational goals.
The true measure of success for any school can only be determined by evaluating the success of its students. And 2009, we’re pleased to say, has been another great year for Penn Foster and you…our students. This year, a preliminary survey of last year’s graduates revealed that Penn Foster students earn back their tuition in less than three months after graduation, and our graduates received an average 15.6% increase in income after completing their program. This comes as great news, not only for the quality of the training we offer, but of the caliber of students who enroll in our programs. We’ve always felt that our students are particularly committed to their success and these statistics bear this out.
This past year, we had many students (current and alumni) come back to us with such great stories about how their own hard work and determination, along with the training they received from Penn Foster, led them to accomplish more than even they thought was possible. Penn Foster graduate Allana Adridge is just one example…
“My experience with Penn Foster was a life rewarding one that will grow with me throughout my life. I have learned a lot from studying with Penn Foster. The information was mind-blowing and mind transforming. I would love to continue my studies with Penn Foster in the future.”
Hearing stories like Allana’s validates everything that we set out to accomplish as a school. It is with great pride that we play our part in “Changing Lives through Accessible, Affordable Education.”
As we start another exciting year, everyone at Penn Foster wishes a happy and healthy New Year to our alumni, students, and their most important support system…their families and friends.
