StraighterLine, the fastest-growing provider of affordable, high quality online general education courses, has partnered with Central Penn College, a career-oriented, baccalaureate and post-baccalaureate, residential college in Summerdale, a suburb of Harrisburg, with an offsite location in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Central Penn prepares graduates for career success by providing an affordable, hands-on, real world education. Flexible course schedules, experienced and caring faculty, and small class sizes demonstrate a dedication to students' personal and professional success.
Of the partnership, StraighterLine founder and CEO Burck Smith says, “Central Penn College has a proven history of offering students a flexible and affordable pathway to their college degree. We’re excited to be partnering with an institution whose mission is aligned with our own.”
Dr. Karen M. Scolforo, president of Central Penn College, echoes this: "At Central Penn College, it is common practice to seek out opportunities on behalf of our students. Our partnership with StraighterLine will provide students with an affordable option to complete general education requirements not currently offered at the college, and stay on track in their programs of study."
Central Penn College offers associate, bachelor’s, and master’s degrees in a variety of fields. Flexible academic offerings include a mix of day and evening classes, along with on-site, hybrid, and online delivery options.
Central Penn can trace its rich history of preparing its graduates for career success back to 1881. The college offers classes both at their Summerdale Campus and Lancaster Center, and online using cutting edge video technology. The college’s caring faculty and staff use an innovative, holistic approach to education including real-world experiences, a culture of research and scholarship, and a commitment to supporting students both before and after graduation with individualized career assistance.
