PAPSA Testimonials

we're dedicated to representing you.

A strong state association is critical to the future of our schools and PAPSA is the BEST in the country… The consistent communication with key state regulators and the professional development offered by PAPSA continues to keep our schools viable as leaders in career education.

Rex Spaulding

President North American Trade Schools, Inc.

I’ve had the honor to work with PAPSA and its member schools for the past 25 years. You won’t find a more caring, innovative, and engaged group of college professionals anywhere. It has always been an honor to provide educational content to these institutions who are successfully preparing Pennsylvania’s workforce for new or advanced careers. I consider PAPSA members friends as well as trusted colleagues in the business of education.

Alan Hensley

Vice President McGraw Hill Education

PAPSA is a vital resource for all private, career-focused institutions in Pennsylvania. Pittsburgh Technical College’s affiliation with PAPSA continues to provide the college with insight and information ensuring we are in front of regulatory changes and industry needs. PAPSA continues to provide access to relevant, timely, and cost-effective training for administrators and faculty with outstanding national and regional presenters. PTC’s affiliation with PAPSA is truly invaluable.

Greg DeFeo

President Pittsburgh Technical College

As a small privately-owned Cosmetology School, our PAPSA Membership is priceless! PAPSA keeps us abreast of state and federal regulations. The annual conferences are a wealth of information for our entire staff from Admissions to the Instructors.

Linzi Biesinger

President Altoona Beauty School

I was in the school business for 28 years and I have been on the State’s Private License School Board for 22 years, including many years as the Chairman. PAPSA is the strongest, most pro-active ally of the sector in the nation. It is an advocate, a political resource, a defender, a government research resource and a friend. It is the best such association in the United States that has been run by two of the best people, in retired director Dick Dumaresq and current director Aaron Shenck.
