"I failed the NCLE twice before I took refresh courses via Penn Foster. Those materials such as the contact lenses book helped me a lot to pass the NCLE. Now that I passed the state exam in Sept. 2014, I'm earning $30 an hour. I really want to thank you all at Penn Foster for supporting me."
"I could work during the day and go to school on my own time. I also didn't have to worry about coming up with crazy amounts of money because they had such an easy payment plan that was manageable. My work helped pay for my schooling and once I got my associates I became more of an asset to them. I am now an accounting supervisor. Thank you Penn Foster for changing my life."
Meet Giovanni Bovenzi, a 2015 Penn Foster High School graduate. Giovanni describes what he loved about Penn Foster and why he recommends the High School program to everyone!
"I chose Paralegal Studies as my main focus of study because I have always been interrested in Law. Penn Foster gives me the chance to receive a good education at an affordable cost and with the bonus of a flexible schedule. I just recently got a job in my field so once I actually finish my degree, I plan on being able to move up in the company that I am working with."
Meet Ophelia Coates, a 2015 Career School graduate from the ABC® Certified Wedding Planner program. Ophelia discusses why she enrolled in Penn Foster’s Wedding Planner program and how it’s helped her take her career goals one step further.
"With four children and a full-time job, it was impossible for me to even consider attending school full time. Once my employer saw my textbooks and learned that the Penn Foster College Veterinary Technician Program was accredited by the AVMA, he offered to help me pay my tuition. I was able to work on my homework, take exams, and write reports when it was convenient for me. As I've acquired new skills through Penn Foster College, I've received positive feedback and pay increases."
"Not only did I receive my Pharmacy Technician Career Diploma in less than a year, but I just received a job offer from Rite Aid Pharmacy for a Pharmacy Cashier position. I only graduated my program 9 days ago! Plus, it's a pay increase over my current pay rate. Enrolling at Penn Foster Career School is the best decision I ever made."

"My experience with Penn Foster was amazing. Right from the start, I found the school to be extremelly supportive. I studied and took the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board Exam in May 2013, and passed that exam on the first try. After receiving documentation in July 2013, I began looking for a job in August and got hired in November 2013. Penn Foster continues to inspire me to do more and grow further in this industry."
