High school diploma program
One of our top goals at St. Louis Job Corps is to ensure that every qualified student obtains his or her GED/high school diploma prior to leaving the center. Students who don't already have a high school diploma upon their arrival at St. Louis can enroll into our GED program.
Participation in the GED program requires students to complete preparatory course work and to successfully complete the Tests of Adult Basic Education (TABE). To qualify for participation in our high school diploma program, students must be between the ages of 16-20 and must have a copy of their high school transcripts. Our high school diploma program is accredited through North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Program AdvancED program
Students under 21 years of age may co-enroll in our Normandy Technical High School Program which is a work-based learning program operated under the supervision of the Normandy School District.
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.
Our students may also start their college education via our partnerships with the St. Louis Community Colleges, The University of Missouri at St. Louis, and Harris Stowe University.
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
Driver's Education is available to all students needing their driver's license.
