Per Scholas

Per Scholas was founded more than 20 years ago with a mission to open doors to transformative technology careers for individuals from often overlooked communities. We accomplish this mission today by:

CREATING OPPORTUNITY
For people who work hard, we create real opportunities to build better lives for themselves and their families.

CLOSING THE SKILLS DIVIDE
We prepare smart, dedicated people to work in key technical roles, always designing our courses in response to what employers tell us they need.

ACHIEVING DIVERSITY
We are building a more diverse technical workforce by creating on-ramps for women and people of color, groups staggeringly underrepresented in IT employment today. 90% of our students are people of color, a third are women and a third are disconnected young adults.
