Penn Foster Launches Online High School Diploma Program with a Healthcare Career Focus
Date:4/6/2009

SCRANTON, Pa., April 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Penn Foster High School, one of the oldest and largest distance learning institutions in the world, has created an online curriculum with a concentration in healthcare courses as an integral part of a student's program.

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the healthcare industry is generating more jobs than any other field. Penn Foster is addressing this need by offering a high school program that includes five one-credit courses in healthcare support training. Students enrolled in this program will be able to earn their high school diploma while simultaneously earning credits that can be used toward one of several allied health programs.

"We believe the career training component in our high school program will one day become a basic component of all high schools," stated Stuart Udell, CEO of Penn Foster and Chairman of the National Dropout Prevention Center/Network. "Along with their high school diploma, we are helping students prepare for a specific career field while encouraging them to complete their secondary education," added Mr. Udell.
