Today, our Executive Director visited Dr. Robert Ketterer Charter School, which was founded in 1998 and was the first charter school in Westmoreland County. Ketterer’s niche is providing positive academic, behavioral and therapeutic support in a nurturing environment for students who have struggled in a traditional school setting. The school’ student population consist mainly of adjudicated youth from across Pennsylvania who are considered neglected and/or delinquent and students from Ketterer’s local school districts who are having difficulties conforming to a traditional public school setting. This school is a chance for a new beginning for many students in the Commonwealth.
