NP Community Education

When we have left familiar ways, with friends have had to part; and school days are a mem'ry deep in each separate heart; then we shall think of North Penn High..

The Community Education Program offers a variety of learning and recreational experiences for people of all ages during its fall/winter and spring terms. Course listings are distributed by mail in September and February and are also available online at http://www.northpenncep.org/. Summer camps for children are also available in a variety of areas. For more information, call the Office of School and Community Engagement at 215-853-1028 or 215-853-1029.

NPSD officials believe that public school facilities should be used extensively by the citizens who paid for them. Support for the community school demonstrates that school directors and administrators are committed to community use of school facilities.

The Community Education Program is always seeking new teachers and course ideas. Interested individuals should call the Community Education Office (215-853-1028/215-853-1029), email cep@npenn.org, or complete the CEP Instructor application.

GED testing is offered once a month through the NPSD Community Education Program. The GED test includes five subjects – reading, writing, math, science and social studies. A 10-week GED Preparation Course is available during the fall and spring terms. For more information, please CLICK HERE. To apply for a GED test, please complete the GED Test Application.

Gold Card Program
Any North Penn School District resident age 60 or older is eligible to be a member of the GOLD CARD CLUB. The GOLD CARD CLUB card is nontransferable. A GOLD CARD may be used for free admission to the musical, dramatic and athletic events sponsored by the school district. Card holders are also encouraged to enroll in the Community Education Program and the Community Aquatic Program for a variety of classes and recreational activities without paying the usual registration fees. Members are entitled to one class each term for no charge or at the GOLD CARD reduced rate.

Special activities for GOLD CARD members are announced throughout the year. Please follow a few procedures which should make it easier for all of us:

  • For all athletic events (home games only), use the card as your pass.
  • For any event where the sale of tickets is limited by seating capacity – to assure yourself of a seat, please present your card to the school office for a ticket prior to the performance date.
  • For a course in the Community Education Program or membership in the Community Aquatic Program – present your GOLD CARD when you register. Some courses have limited enrollment and are filled quickly.

Keep in mind that many community organizations use school facilities for their programs. A GOLD CARD admits you free to most programs sponsored by the school district – but we cannot promise that it would admit you to programs sponsored by other groups.

PLEASE NOTE: Gold Card online registration for the Fall 2012/Winter 2013 semester is not available. Please mail or drop off your Gold Card registration form and payment.

If you have a question about the GOLD CARD CLUB or wish to obtain a membership card, please call the Office of School and Community Engagement at 215-853-1028 or 215-853-1029.
