Peirce College and School District of Philadelphia Corporate Partnership
You probably expect college to be a little different for you as a working adult learner than it is for traditional-age students. And you should, too. Your needs are different. It's been a long time since you've been in a classroom, taking notes and tests. In the meantime, you've gotten a job, picked up more than a few responsibilities and maybe even started a family. So how is higher education going to work for you?
Well, if you choose Peirce College, you'll be choosing a school that has focused on the unique needs of adult education for more than 150 years. Since its founding in 1865, Peirce has offered the sort of market-relevant programs that adult learners need to help them advance their careers. You need the type of practical skills and knowledge that employers look for in job candidates, and you'll get it at Peirce.
What's more, you'll be able to take flexible, accelerated courses to help you balance school with your work and life. Courses start every two months at Peirce and are available online or on campus. If you need to, you can even switch between online and on-campus learning every week – the choice is yours.
