For parents involved in the success of their child, it’s essential for their student to pursue the right path after graduating high school or earning a GED. That’s why Pennco Tech, a premier trade school with campuses in Blackwood, New Jersey, and Bristol, Pennsylvania, is standing by with the information parents need for their child’s post-secondary education and future.
Not all students are meant to attend a traditional college or university. Whether they learn better in a hands-on environment or don’t see themselves fitting into a specific major, these students should be encouraged to consider trade school programs like those offered at Pennco Tech. Involved parents can find comfort in the fact that parents of students on our campuses are nothing but proud of their child’s decision to attend Pennco Tech. But don’t just take our word for it. We talked to Lewis Tharpe, parent of recent graduate Chris Tharpe, who had this to say about his child’s experience in our Electrician program:
“As a parent, it was an honor to see my son come through this program, graduate, and do very well. Before, there was such a push to send people to college, and every young person isn’t college-oriented. Some young people have more of a hands-on acumen and learn better doing things in trades. My son talked to me oftentimes about the instructors and how they helped him with any types of struggles he had. Pennco Tech is a wonderful opportunity for any young person who wants to make a great life and career. It’s a family-oriented environment, and your child will do well here. The beautiful thing about it is that my son is an instructor now – it makes me very proud. This is definitely a school that will get behind your child and help them all the way through. Even after you graduate, the career services department will help you find a job, no matter what state you’re in. With Pennco Tech, you’re Pennco for life.”
