GED/High School Diploma
One of our top goals at Tulsa Job Corps Center is to ensure that students seeking a GED or high school diploma have the opportunity to earn one prior to leaving our center. Students are required to complete twenty-three units of study to become a high school graduate.
The state of Oklahoma has granted diploma issuing credentials to the four Job Corps centers in Oklahoma as a single school district. The central office is located at Tulsa Job Corps Center, and these four centers work together to ensure that Oklahoma dropouts get a second chance at finishing high school at the Oklahoma Job Corps Academy. As well as being accredited by the state of Oklahoma, the Oklahoma Job Corps Academy is also accredited by North Central Accreditation (NCA).
English Language Learning Program
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 and reading 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.
