Private and Non-Public Enrollment (PNPE) 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.

The following user groups have access to enter and/or submit data through PNPE;

  • PNPUser
  • IUUser
  • DiocesanUser
  • DicesanSchoolUser

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.

Data Submission documents assist in the data entry and submission process. It is recommended that the data submission documents be used when preparing to enter data, and during the data entry and submission process.
