Our GED program provides detailed training for the five subject areas of the GED battery test so that students can obtain high school equivalency certification before they graduate.
High School Diploma
One of our top goals at Jacobs Creek Job Corps is to ensure that every qualified student obtains his or her high school diploma prior to leaving the center. Students who don't already have a high school diploma upon their arrival at Jacobs Creek can enroll in our high school program.
Tutoring and Academic Support
Tutoring programs are available where students are tutored in math, reading, and science by instructors or by fellow students (Peer Student Tutors). Students interested in getting into a tutoring program may contact their instructors or the Academic Manager.
The College Program is an advanced training program we offer through a partnership with Virginia Highlands Community College. To qualify for this program, a student must have a high school diploma or GED (from our center or another educational facility) and have successfully completed a vocational trade at Job Corps.
Benefits of the College Program include:
- academic advisement, mentoring, and tutoring
- paid tuition, fees, books, and supplies
- housing and recreation
- meals provided by Job Corps, on-and-off center
- transportation to and from college of choice
English Language Learning
Students needing to learn English can enter our English Language Learning (ELL) program. Students in the ELL program are tested regularly to determine their language proficiency levels.
Driver's Education is available to all students needing their driver's license.
