High School Equivalency
One of our top goals at Charleston Job Corps is to ensure that every qualified student obtains his or her high school equivalency prior to leaving the center. Students who don't already have a high school diploma upon their arrival at Charleston are automatically enrolled into our high school equivalency program. Students who complete this program's core classes may participate in an online high school equivalency program which is paid for by the center.
English Language Learning Program
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.
Tutoring programs are available where students are tutored in math, reading, social studies, and writing 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.
Driver's Education is available to all students needing their driver's license.
The College Program is an advanced training program. 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
We are offering this program through partnerships with BridgeValley Community Technical College and West Virginia State University.
