In addition to career and technical training, Alaska 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 the Alaska 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 the Alaska center are automatically enrolled into our GED. Students who complete this program's core classes may participate in our high school diploma program which is an on-center program.
Driver's Education is available to all students needing a Alaska driver's license. The class combines behind-the-wheel driving time, in a center owned vehicle, and class time. Permits and licensing fees for students are paid for by the center. Arrangements for students to take the written and road examinations are also handled by the center.
Advanced Training Opportunities
The Alaska Job Corps Center offers a college program where students can enroll in Advanced Career Training (ACT) and attend the Matanuska-Susitna College in Palmer.
