Academics

In addition to career training, Cincinnati Job Corps also provides academic training, including basic reading and math. Courses in independent living, employability skills, and social skills are offered in order to help students transition into the workplace. We also have several academic programs to help our students achieve their full potential.

GED/High School Diploma

One of our top goals at Cincinnati 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 Cincinnati can enroll in our GED and high school programs. Our high school diploma program is accredited by the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation.

Advanced Career Training Program

Students have the opportunity for Advanced Career Training (ACT) at Cincinnati State Technical and Community College. To qualify for this program, a student must have a high school diploma or GED (from our center or an other educational facility) and have successfully completed a vocational trade at Job Corps.

Benefits of the ACT 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

Other Training Programs

Driver's Education is available to all students needing their driver's license. We also offer CPR and first aid training through a partnership with the American Red Cross. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)-10 training is offered to both students and staff members through a partnership with the International Chemical Workers Union Council (ICWUC).
