College Receives $700,000 Grant from CCRES
(Delaware and Chester Counties, PA • July 28, 2014) — This year, Delaware County Community College again received a $700,000 grant from CCRES. The 2014-15 grant will support the College’s participation with the Chester County Intermediate Unit (CCIU) at the Chester County Technical College High School Pennocks Bridge Campus.
Located in southern Chester County, the Pennocks Bridge Campus is a unique, state-of-the art, hybrid educational facility that provides career training and other educational services at both the secondary and post-secondary levels. Now entering its seventh year of operation, the school offers a wide range of quality programs and services that are affordable and accessible to southern Chester County and the surrounding area.
The College’s continued partnership with the Intermediate Unit has resulted in tremendous educational opportunity for residents throughout Chester County. The success of the collaboration is also reflected in the recent opening of the College’s new location in Phoenixville, within the Technical College High School Pickering Campus. The Phoenixville Campus provides local residents with a close-to-home option for accessing an affordable, quality education and offers credit and non-credit courses. The campus gives students in northern Chester County access to the same level of educational opportunity that students in the southern part of the county have enjoyed for years.
Established in 1999, CCRES’ mission is to ensure quality education and human service programs for children, families and schools. Through innovative partnerships, CCRES provides human resources, training and grant opportunities on a regional basis.
