The Pennsylvania Human Relations Act (PHRAct) prohibits discrimination against prospective and current students of kindergartens, primary and secondary schools, high schools, academies, colleges and universities, extension courses and all educational institutions under the supervision of the Commonwealth. The PHRAct prohibits discrimination because of an applicant’s or current student’s race, color, sex, religion, ancestry, national origin, handicap or disab\ ility, record of a handicap or disability, or relationship or association with an individual with a \ handicap or disability, use of a guide or support animal, and/or handling or training of support or \ guide animals. The PHRAct does not protect prospective and current students of “distinctly private” educational institutions such as parochial schools, nor does it protect prospective and current students from age discrimination. It is also unlawful to retaliate against any prospective or current student because he or she has filed a complaint with the Commission or to aid or abet any unlawful discriminatory practice under the PHRAct or the PFEOAct. The Pennsylvania Fair Educational Opportunities Act (PFEOAct) prohibits discrimination against prospective and current students of any postsecondary institution and any secondary or post- secondary secretarial, business, vocational or trade school subject to the visitation, examination or inspection of and/or actual or potential licensure by the Department of Education because of a prospective or current student’s race, religion, color, ancestry, national origin, sex, handicap or disability, and/or relationship or association with an individual with a\ handicap or disability. The PFEOAct permits religious or denominational institutions to use religion in their admissions, enrollment and program decisions. Educational institutions which are neither state-owned, state- related, nor state-aided may offer single-sex classes. The PFEOAct does not protect prospective or current students from age discrimination. This notice must be posted conspicuously in easily accessible and well-lighted places at the educa- tional institution where it may be readily seen by those seeking, using or granting any of the educa- tional institution’s accommodations, advantages, facilities or privileges. This notice should be exhibited prominently wherever the educational institution exhibits informational notices, e.g. Web sites, bulletin boards, and student handbooks and publications.
