GED/High School Diploma Program
One of our top goals at Keystone Job Corps is to ensure that every qualified student obtains his or her GED/high school diploma prior to leaving the center. We offer GED preparation and high school diploma classes where students benefit from individual attention, small class sizes, and peer encouragement.
Students who enter the GED program receive specialized training classes designed to improve the students' critical thinking and problem-solving skills necessary to obtain their GED.
Students can also receive their high school diplomas through our partnership with Penn Foster High School. To enroll in this program, students must provide their most recent high school transcripts and meet other requirements. For more information, contact your admissions counselor.
English Language Learning Program
Students needing to learn English can enter our English Language Learning (ELL) program. Keystone is in partnership with Luzerne County Community College to provide ELL services. 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.
The College Program is an advanced training program offered through a partnership with Luzerne County Community College. 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.
