Celebrate the 125th anniversary of Penn Foster
"I am, as I was more than 30 years ago, privileged to contribute to a school that for 125 years has remained steadfast in its commitment to make a high quality and affordable education available to anyone who so desires it. Congratulations Penn Foster! Thank you for affording me the opportunity to play a small part in helping others advance their education and realize their dream for a better, more fulfilling life."
"Even though I've been here for less than a year, Penn Foster has already changed my life and improved my confidence and drive to do things. Thanks to their distance education program, I'm able to get my high school diploma, go to a college/university, and shape my future as I move forward into the world of adulthood."
"I have been at Penn Foster for almost 26 years. I started right before we celebrated our 100th Anniversary! The business itself has changed a lot since I started working here, but our purpose is still the same... serving our students!!"

"I highly believe it was Penn Foster that helped me down the road to success, and I will never forget what that meant to me. I am so very proud to be Penn Foster graduate soon, and will always recommend this school to everyone. My success is also Penn Foster’s success."
"Going to Penn Foster High School has been one of the greatest opportunities that has been available to me. By finishing, it has allowed to go to the college of my choice."
"I was a high school dropout, and never in a million years did I think I would get a second chance. Penn Foster High School was there to give me that second chance. Now, I can look up at family and friends, and say that ‘I am a high school graduate..."
"I am 53 years old. I registered for classes when I realized that if I wanted to compete with the "younger crowd" in my field, I needed to up my game. To do that, I needed to get a degree. Penn Foster College offered everything I needed, when I needed it, and at an affordable rate.
It's an incredible feeling to complete a test, course, semester, and see just how well I can do. I made the Dean's List for my last semester. My mom said she was proud of me, and at 87, wants to hang the list on her fridge. Thank you Penn Foster College, for being there when I needed you."
"As an athlete, school was very hard for me. Due to practices and competitions, it got to the point where I would fail classes because I was never there. Thanks to Penn Foster I will be graduating, and am now making better grades than I ever have before! Being a figure skater is hard work, but being able to start a life after I get my diploma will be the greatest feeling in the world!"
"Penn Foster was my chance for the education that I so deeply wanted. I got my accredited high school diploma online through Penn Foster High School. I graduated with a 4.0 GPA on September 3rd of 2014 at the age of 23. I turned 24 on the 14th and enrolled in Penn Foster Career School for my Medical Administrative Assistant diploma on September 16th. I delivered our surprise baby Marley Roy, kiddo number six, on September 25th. Penn Foster gave me an opportunity that wasn't available for me anywhere else; an accredited, online, self-paced high school diploma!
It's now March of 2015 and I'm a mom, a wife, a high school graduate, a career school student, and a Penn Foster Student Ambassador. I plan on going to nursing school someday. My future is bright! I'm so thankful for Penn Foster and I'm looking forward to seeing other students feel the same success I have in achieving their educational goals. Thank you for the opportunity!"
"My husband and I had an aha moment! He realized that he had taken a course from ICS many years ago. It was a surprising and touching moment to know that we both have attended the very same school at different times. It gives us a special connection that we didn't even know we had!"
"What Penn Foster means to me is that I can still enjoy life and go to school. I can do what I want, when I want. This is something that can't be found easily elsewhere. I am so proud, blessed, and thankful to call myself a Penn Foster Student."
"I turned 50 in 2014. I have been a paralegal for 25 years. It was not my first choice, but I was a single parent and needed a steady job, steady income, and benefits. While I would never have traded the time with my son, I had always wanted to work with animals. So, I decided to go for it and started the Veterinary Assistant program and I couldn't be happier or more resolute for my future career! Thank you, Penn Foster, for helping my dream to come true!"

"Just look at yourself in the mirror one morning and say, 'I am that person I know I can be,' and take that first step towards your brighter future; because you are your greatest investment. I'm grateful to all the staff at Penn Foster for giving me that second chance and allowing me to move forward in life."
