Data Collection Procedures 

The Private and Non-Public Enrollment (PNPE) system is a web-based application in which Pennsylvania ’s private and non-public schools report students who were enrolled as of October 1 of the school year. Pennsylvania ’s Private and Non-Public schools report student enrollment and other school information.

User training documents are located at the bottom of the page after Support information.


User Manuals were created to provide assistance with the PNPE enrollment process. The User Manual was designed with step-by-step instructions, including screen shots, to provide quick and easy assistance throughout the data entry and submission process. It is highly recommended the User Manual be referenced during the data entry and data submission process.
