GED/High School Diploma
One of our top goals at Brunswick 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 Brunswick are automatically enrolled into our GED/high school program. Students who complete this program's core classes may participate in our online high school diploma program which is paid for by the center.
Georgia High School Graduation Test
Through an agreement between Brunswick Job Corps and the local public school system, students previously enrolled in high school who did not pass any portion of the Georgia High School Graduation Test (GHSGT) can retake it at a local high school or at our center.
To retake the GHSGT, students are required to be making satisfactory progress towards a GED/high school diploma at our center. Test scores will be mailed to the student's original high school.
English Language Learning (ELL) 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.
