Naturally, adult learners who have been away from a classroom for a long time have concerns about returning. But once they start taking classes, they usually find they enjoy learning and do just fine. We offer refresher English and Math courses for those who need to brush up on these skills. So don’t worry, just take one step at a time. We’re not going to tell you it’s easy; but, in the long run, we think you’ll be glad you made the decision to pursue your education. Remember, the staff and faculty at Penn State Shenango want you to succeed.
