Parent, PHS Class of 2015

This money will truly make a difference for M., to actually be able to afford to attend Montclair State. I cried for an hour when I heard how generous the scholarship was! It is so hard as a parent to ask your child to push forward for their goals, and then not be able to afford the school they really wanted to go to. So a real heart felt thank you to make M’s dream come true.

K.M., PHS Class 2014

My 101 experience has been really good. It’s a good program to be in, because college can be very stressful especially in the beginning. The 101 program helped me make that transition less stressful by answering questions I’ve had and giving me a guiding hand. They also gave me the opportunity to work towards my degree, and for that I’m thankful.
