Students can participate in Community Service projects to better the community

Community Service

PTI students, faculty and staff are engaged in the community around them, doing the right thing for the right reasons. Giving back comes naturally to the PTI family.

The efforts of our students, faculty and staff haven't gone unnoticed. We are proud of the fact that we have received national and statewide awards. The Pennsylvania Association of Private School Administrators (PAPSA) and the Association of Private Sector Colleges and Universities (APSCU) have honored our family with their annual community service awards on multiple occasions.
