One of our top goals at Hartford 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 Hartford are automatically enrolled in our GED program. Students who complete this program's core classes may participate in an online high school diploma program which is paid for by the center.
High School Diploma Program
Our online high school diploma program is a self-paced curriculum that allows students the opportunity to achieve a high school diploma. The program is provided through Home Study International (HSI) and is accredited by national accreditation agencies.
Tutoring programs are available where students are tutored in math, reading, science, 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.
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 with the California Adult Student Assessment System (CASAS) test to determine their language proficiency levels.
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 a partnership with Asnuntuck Community College, Capital Community College, Central Connecticut State University, Goodwin College, and Manchester Community College.
Driver's Education is available to all students needing their driver's license.
