GED/High School Diploma
One of our top priorities at Flint Hills Job Corps is to ensure that every qualified student obtains their high school diploma or high school equivalency (GED) prior to leaving the center. Students who do not possess a high school diploma upon arrival will be enrolled in one of three programs: USD 383 - Manhattan High, GED, or the Penn Foster online high school program. Students will be evaluated to see which option is best for their success.
Students may also participate in our high school diploma program which is administered by the Manhattan Alternative High School. Our high school diploma program features self-paced, computer-based classes monitored by certified high school instructors.
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, reading, social studies, and writing 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.
The College Program is an advanced training program. To qualify for this program, a student must have a high school diploma or GED (from our center or another educational facility) and have successfully completed a vocational trade at Job Corps.
Benefits of the College Program include:
• academic advisement, mentoring, and tutoring
• paid tuition, fees, books, and supplies
• housing and recreation
• meals provided by Job Corps, on-and-off center
• transportation to and from college of choice
We offer this program through partnerships with Cloud County Community College, Manhattan Area Technical College, and Kansas State University.
Driver's Education is available to all students needing their driver's license.
