WEST ORANGE, N.J., June 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Lincoln Educational Services Corporation (NASDAQ: LINC), a national leader in specialized technical training and a driving force in helping students turn their passion into professional success, announces a partnership with Universal Companies ("Universal"), a non-profit urban development company whose mission is to provide a superior education to Philadelphia-area students and combat the tide of poverty in the city. Through this new joint effort, rising high school seniors from one of the Philadelphia area's premier charter schools will have the opportunity to enroll in a special early admissions program at Lincoln Technical Institute's Center City Philadelphia campus.
"At Lincoln, we understand the value of partnering with organizations such as Universal Companies," says Lincoln's CEO Shaun McAlmont. "Universal shares Lincoln's goal of creating a competitive workforce and providing students with opportunities to build exciting, rewarding careers."
The Lincoln-Universal partnership is centered around Universal Audenried Charter High School (UACHS), the flagship institution of the Universal family of schools, with 700 students in grades 9-12. The partnership will involve a summer program for juniors entering their senior year in the fall of 2014, as well as early access to Lincoln course offerings while still enrolled as students at UACHS.
"This Partnership will ultimately provide Lincoln Technical Institute with a pipeline of qualified UACHS students who are motivated and seek the wealth of job opportunities that a Lincoln education can provide," says Dr. Patrick Oates, PhD, Vice President for Science Education at Universal Companies.
