Central Penn College - A Message from the President

Central Penn College


A Message from the President

Dr. Karen Scolforo

Right from my first visit to the Summerdale campus, I knew Central Penn College was in a class of its own. I was impressed to see a distinctive, career-focused institution—a college that is committed to holistic student development and the preparation of its graduates for job readiness in a business, medical or governmental environment.

What most resonates with me about Central Penn College is the student body. I see proud, spirited students who are energized by passionate faculty and staff, and I am impressed by their dedication and commitment. With the small class sizes and personalized attention Central Penn provides, students can develop the critical personal and professional relationships that will move them closer to their goals.

I strongly believe in the significance of fostering relationships and community partnerships on behalf of Central Penn College students and graduates. Community members and prospective students are always welcome to visit our Summerdale campus. And most importantly, when you are on campus, please stop by my office in the Boyer House. I would love to meet you and discuss how Central Penn can serve you. I can also be reached at (717) 728-2440 or karenscolforo@centralpenn.edu, and you can feel free to follow me on Twitter and like our Facebook page to keep up with campus events.

At Central Penn College, student courses can be rigorous, and at times students may be pushed further than they thought possible, but I ask them to remember that they will succeed, because they can. When students pair their ability and drive with Central Penn’s support and career-focused program offerings, they have a winning combination. It is my honor to be one of our students’ biggest cheerleaders throughout their educational paths, from enrollment to graduation and beyond.

Go Knights!
