- No unexcused lateness or absence: If you are admitted to Per Scholas, we will expect you to arrive for your classes every day and on time. If you are absent or late too often, we may dismiss you from the program. This is is especially true during the first three weeks, when we have a “zero-tolerance” policy.
- Observe general, common-sense rules: Like any school, we have rules to ensure that all students have an opportunity to benefit as much as possible from our program. In particular, we will not tolerate violent, abusive or harassing behavior, including sexual harassment, toward anyone in our facility. We will also dismiss students who come to Per Scholas under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Lastly, we want you to learn as much as you can while having lots of fun! But it is your responsibility, as much as it is ours, to make this happen. At any time, if you are having a problem, you can talk with your instructor or another staff member. We can almost always help.
Do you offer job placement services?
