The Goals of PTA

It is our goal to keep PTA Schools informative and to provide useful information to our users and visitors. As all websites should be, will continuously be a work in progress. We plan on consistently providing users with the information they need to make a decision on their education. This includes analyzing trending, writing informative content, researching specific programs and curricula, and providing it to our users.

The Faces Behind PTA

Lindsay Hall – Writer
Lindsay is the main writer for and has always been intrigued by the healthcare industry, in particular the physical therapy sector after going through physical therapy after a knee injury in high school (she is 100% recovered now!). She also constantly researches education and forward-looking careers. Because her background is in healthcare and she is also a talented writer, she was the perfect fit to run a resource dedicated to physical therapy assisting.

If you see that we are missing a school or have information on PTA that you would like to share with us, please email Lindsay
