New resource from Peirce College helps Philadelphia's working adults earn a degree

Peirce College has launched a new resource -- PhillyAdultLearners.com -- for working adults in the Philadelphia region who are considering going back to school. If you live in the Philadelphia area, you might have heard our radio spot advertising the website.

Philly Adult Learners gives prospective students in the Philadelphia region all the information they need about earning a degree, whether they're deciding if it's the right direction for them, applying to schools, or are already enrolled and looking for a support system.

Peirce looked at the local marketplace and felt that there was not enough information out there to help working adults figure out if they can make the leap to return to school. We decided to close that gap, and Philly Adult Learners was born.

We hope this site makes it easy to find the information you need to make smart decisions about continuing your education and succeeding on the road to degree completion. We've done our best to give working adults the tools they need to change their lives for the better. Here are just a few examples:
  • Perfecting your resume. Describing education, experience, and skills in one page can be a challenge. Use one of these resume samples as a template to create your own.
  • Stress management advice. Add a degree program to a busy work schedule and family life, and it's easy to get overwhelmed. Here are some tips for managing and mitigating stressful situations.
Earning a college degree while juggling the responsibilities of day-to-day life can be a challenge. Peirce wants to make it easier. We do it by providing an unparalleled support system that understands the needs of working adults. Go to Philly Adult Learners to get on the path to completing your degree and changing your life.

Please note: As of August 2015, PhillyAdultLearners is no longer active.
