Academics

In addition to career training, Frenchburg 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 Frenchburg 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 Frenchburg can enroll in our GED program. Students also have the opportunity to earn their high school diplomas through the Menifee County High School Program and the Fayette County High School Program.

Driver's Education

Driver's Education is available to all students needing their driver's license. This program includes classroom and on the road training taught by a state-certified Driver's Education instructor.

Academic Olympics

Students at Frenchburg have the opportunity to compete against other Job Corps students at local, regional, and national Academic Olympics.

College Program

The College Program program is available to students who demonstrate the skills, motivation, and enthusiasm to compete at the college level. Students in the College Program receive all the benefits of Job Corps including free housing, food, medical, recreation, supervision, counseling, and other support.
