Materials on the site help all students - students with learning disabilities, high performing students, student athletes, career and technical students and other students needing the best advice about the college transition. Of particular interest are the materials to help Career and Technical Education students take advantage of the free college credits awarded as part of the SOAR/Program of Study initiative from the Bureau of Career and Technical Education.
GettingThemThere.com combines materials created as part of contracts with Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency's Creating Postsecondary Access Grants (PHEAA - CAPS) and materials created through the Career Development Leader's Network with PA Department of Education's Bureau of Career and Technical Education. Monica McCarty, a PA school counselor and certified school psychologist was a key contributor. The website is maintained by Outreach for K-12 at Pennsylvania College of Technology.
