Employer Description
 

Situated in the heart of Pennsylvania, State College is a thriving, dynamic community. The State College Area School District draws its students from a 150 square mile attendance area encompassing the Borough of State College and the surrounding townships of College, Ferguson, Halfmoon, Harris, and Patton, totaling an enrollment of approximately 6,800.

Competitive pay for teachers and challenging staff development programs help enable SCASD to select from the top personnel available.

Throughout our district, instruction is provided at a teacher to student ratio that is developmentally appropriate to the needs of students and based on the nature of the course(s). Current class size averages for K-5 are 21, Grades 6-8 are 23, and the High School varies due to the breadth of our core and elective course offerings. 

The District is proud of its tradition of academic excellence and service to the greater community. Yet, in spite of our long-standing record of achievement, we remain committed to innovation and continuous improvement of our programs, services and supports for our students. Our instructional focus is built on these Four Pillars:
 
  1. Culture of trust
  2. Responsive teaching and learning
  3. High expectations for all
  4. Welcoming and safe climate for learning and work
