SMART Girls (Science and Math Applications in Real-World Technologies) is a unique summer camp on the Penn College campus that gives girls in grades 9 to 11 the opportunity to experience math and science as a foundation for careers in technology. Penn College NOW enables high school students to earn college credits through dual-enrollment courses taught by approved teachers at their home high schools or career and technology centers.

Both programs are recognized as “innovative educational programs” under the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development’s EITC program, of which the Penn College Foundation has been an approved participant since 2011.

First National Bank is the largest subsidiary of F.N.B. Corp., a diversified, full-service financial institution with more than 300 offices across Pennsylvania, Ohio, Maryland and West Virginia. For more information, visit www.fnb-online.com.
