Perry Tech Ranks #1 in National Study Featured in The New York Times

YAKIMA, Wash.– Perry Technical Institute has achieved top national honors for student success. In a study featured in the New York Times of nearly seven hundred two-year colleges, researchers determined which schools were most effective at helping students climb the income ladder. They named Perry Tech the top two-year college in the nation for income mobility, specifically the highest chance a student would make more money than their parents. The study, titled "Mobility Report Cards: The Role of Colleges in Intergenerational Mobility", said PTI graduates were the most likely to climb to the top 20% of wealthy adults after growing up in the lowest income bracket. They also ranked Perry Tech the top two-year college in the nation for median income at age 34.
