Work Permit

Looking to get a job while in high school?

High school students aged 14 through 17 must have  a work permit (working papers) in order to be employed.  Each school district is responsible for issuing work permits to all minors who reside in their district including those who attend Saint Joseph's Catholic Academy. Saint Joseph's is unable to issue work permits. 

How to get a work permit
To obtain a work permit, a Saint Joseph's student must contact the school district office in which their family resides to learn how to apply.  The process differs between school districts. Below are links to some school district offices:

State College Area School District Counseling Office

Bellfonte Area School District Office
