Education is critical to our region’s economic vitality and quality of life. Leaders here recognize that and invest in our students and schools. Students who live in the city of Pittsburgh and attend Pittsburgh Public Schools in good standing, receive up to $40,000 in scholarship funds through The Pittsburgh Promise. Many of our suburban districts, including Mt. Lebanon, North Allegheny and Upper St. Clair, are among the top in Pennsylvania and nationwide. The region is also home to many private, parochial, charter and cyber schools whose students out-perform their counterparts across the Commonwealth and the U.S.
