William Penn High School has modern and cutting edge degree programs & equipment to prepare our students for college and careers…

William Penn High School has restructured into three colleges: STEM, Business, and Humanities.
Each college offers a variety of majors and concentrations. Students will select a course of study; and over four years, gain the necessary skills to either enter a college or begin a trade. Many of our degree programs offer the opportunity to achieve a trade certificate, and all student transcripts and diplomas include the student’s degree program as they prepare for admission to college. All classes connect to the student’s major and encompass project based learning using industry-standard equipment. All majors include a senior project (working with local businesses) and opportunities for advanced placement courses. Many of our programs articulate to local universities, giving our students the ability to earn college credits while at William Penn High School.

Way to go Kiara! ...

Some of you may remember that back in June, I shared an Instagram post from our first high school intern, Kiara Roach, and talked about how excited we were to have her spend the summer with us. It was the first time that anyone in the office could remember having a high school student doing serious work in the office, so we weren't exactly sure how it would go. Well, Kiara's summer internship ended last week, and she was a star. She became an integral member of the team that prosecutes misdemeanor cases in the Court of Common Pleas, and the attorneys and staff were sad to see her go and are already hoping that she comes back -- and eventually becomes a prosecutor herself down the road. Thanks to Kiara for her great work ethic and infectious enthusiasm, and thanks to the attorneys and staff in the Misdemeanor Trial Unit for working so hard to make the summer a good experience for Kiara.
