GED/High School Diploma
One of our top goals at Gulfport 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 Gulfport 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.
Tutoring and Academic Support
Tutoring programs are available where students are tutored in reading and math 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
Gulfport Job Corps partners with Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College for this program.
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.
