Introducing to New Programs

We are excited to announce that after a recent visit the PA Department of Education gave a verbal approval for Rosedale to offer two new programs. The new programs: Applied Business Management and Industrial Technician will be a welcome addition to the plethora of programs currently being offered. Part of our mission has always been to help fuel a growing economy by training and equipping students to be an invaluable asset to an employer. With these two new programs; which are fields in high demand, Rosedale will be able to continue our high rate of success.
