On February 16, the Keystone Education Yields Success (KEYS) program presented “Healthy Relationships, the Art of Healing,” an event that addressed various mental, physical and environmental issues that negatively impact the health of a community.
On January 2, the Institute for Community Engagement and Civic Leadership officially adopted the Spring Garden School, a K-8 grade school led by its passionate Principal, Ms. Laureal Robinson. The school is located less than a mile from the College in a quaint building that is home to a dedicated teaching staff and almost 300 bright and beautiful children.
On December 22, 2017, the Institute for Community Engagement and Civic Leadership partnered with Community Angel Foundation to fulfill holiday wishes for five families of DACE students and the Spring Garden School, our newly adopted K-8 school. Fourteen children, ranging from infancy to age 10, received gifts they may not otherwise have received — and they couldn’t have been happier!

We are proud of the Parkway Center City Middle College High School students for their successful fall 2017 semester.
In January, the English as a Second Language Institute welcomed its spring cohort of more than 70 students with a comprehensive new student orientation.
In November 2017, the TRIO Upward Bound program moved to its new home on the third floor of the Winnet Student Life Building. Both staff and students loved getting to create a space of their own with new furniture, a SMART Board classroom, and more tutoring and storage space.
Each fall and spring semester, TRIO Upward Bound students get to enjoy trips to local colleges and universities. This year, the students had the opportunity to visit Haverford College and the University of the Sciences.
