High school diploma programs
One of our top goals at Penobscot 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 Penobscot can enroll in our GED/high school program.
Our diploma program is offered through a partnership with Penn Foster and linkage agreements with local school districts.
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.
Tutoring programs are available where students are tutored in math, reading, writing, 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.
Advanced Career Training
Our Advanced Career Training (ACT) Program is for the college bound student. After the successful completion of your career technical training, you can participate in the ACT program. Students who want to enroll in one of four local colleges must have obtained a GED or high school diploma and will be eligible for an additional year of services at Penobscot Job Corps. ACT students benefit from our continued residential services and will receive assistance selecting the right college, filling out college applications and financial aid forms, and purchasing books.
This program is offered through a partnership with Eastern Maine Community College.
Driver's Education is available to all students needing their driver's license.
