GED/High School Diploma
One of our top goals at Montgomery Job Corps is to ensure that every qualified student obtains his or her GED or high school diploma prior to leaving the center. Students who don't already have a high school diploma upon their arrival at Montgomery 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.
Montgomery Job Corps has partnered with the Montgomery Public Schools System to provide career technical training at four of their high schools. Students may choose from the following trades: Clinical Medical Assistant (CMA), Certified Nursing Assistant, Accounting Services, Office Administrator, Facilities Maintenance, Material Handling, Electrical, and Carpentry. Students spend half of the day at the high school for academic training and the other half of the day at our center for career technical training.
Tutoring and Academic Support
Tutoring programs are available where students are tutored in math, reading, and social studies 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. 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
Montgomery Job Corps offers this program through partnerships with Alabama State University and Trenholm State Community College.
English Language Learning
Students needing to learn English can enter our English Language Learning (ELL) program. Students in the ELL program are tested to determine their language proficiency levels.
We have a dynamic driver's education program led by a certified driver's education instructor. This program provides students with a detailed understanding of driving fundamentals and promotes responsible driving attitudes and behaviors.
Military Training Unit
The Military Training Unit (MTU) teaches our students the value of citizenship, leadership, service to the community, and personal responsibility. MTU also provides students with self-esteem, teamwork, self-discipline, and a sense of accomplishment. MTU's focus is reflected in its mission statement: "To Build Better Citizens for America."
