Per Scholas is Closed for the Week

To recognize the hard work and commitment of our full Per Scholas team, we are providing an org-wide week off from July 4-8. This break is designed for all staff and learners to relax and recharge. If you have an urgent inquiry, please email [email protected]. While staff will be limited during this week, we will make every effort to respond as quickly as possible.
