In addition to career training, Grafton 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 Grafton 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 Grafton are enrolled into our GED program. Our GED program integrates the latest in learning, teaching, and testing technology, and each student receives one-on-one attention by highly qualified and motivated academic instructors.
Students may be eligible to earn their high school diploma by completing course requirements at Grafton. A new student's eligibility will be determined during the first few months of enrollment and depends greatly on his/her former high school career and the school(s) attended.
Driver's Education is available to all students needing their Massachusetts driver's License. Students are trained by a Massachusetts State Certified Driving Instructor with more than 12 years teaching young people the rules of the road.
Military Careers Preparation Program (MILCAP)
MILCAP is an elective program for our students designed specifically to prepare them for careers in the military. Through a formal agreement between our center and the U.S. Army Recruiting Command, recruiters have an office on campus and work closely with current and prospective MILCAP trainees.
All Grafton Job Corps students are welcome to participate in MILCAP. There are many military careers available for plumbers, carpenters, cooks, administrative assistants, certified nursing assistants, guards, and electricians.
