At Penn Foster, we are dedicated to helping our students build brighter futures through accessible and affordable education. Our mission has remained the same over the past 125+ years: to create a better world through knowledge and skill. Penn Foster works to empower youth and adult learners to achieve their academic goals so they may unlock their career potential, and ultimately better position themselves for success.
Penn Foster has a rich history of providing career training for in-demand fields. Founded in 1890, Penn Foster was one of the first pioneers of distance learning. With more than 30,000 graduates each year across the United States, Penn Foster’s online and blended learning programs are self-paced and personalized. Our affordable programs give students the flexibility to learn around their own schedules, with 24/7 access to a supportive online community of students and faculty. Students also receive coaching and support through our comprehensive academic, professional and personal support from our faculty, student services team, and online Student Community.
