In addition to career training, Wilmington 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 Wilmington 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 Wilmington can enroll in our GED program.
Students may also participate in our online high school diploma program offered through Penn Foster. To earn a high school diploma, students must earn 21 credits and pass a comprehensive final exam.
Read 180 (English Language Learning) Program
Students needing to increase their literacy skills can enter our Read 180 program. The Read 180 program offers interactive lesson plans, computer programs, and small learning groups to improve students' English language skills.
Our College Program is an advanced training program offered through our partnership with Delaware Technical & Community College. Students in this program can earn college credits for certifications gained at our center.
Benefits of the College Program include:
- Tuition assistance and financial aid
- Paid fees, books, and supplies
- Academic advisement and tutoring assistance
To qualify for this program, a student must have a high school diploma or GED, have successfully completed Office Administration, Culinary Arts, or Facilities Maintenance career training at our center, and pass an admissions test.
