High School Equivalency (HSE)/High School Diploma (HSD) Program
One of our goals at Loring Job Corps is to ensure that every qualified student obtains his or her HSE/high school diploma prior to leaving the center. Students who don't already have a high school diploma upon their arrival at Loring can enroll in our HSE/high school diploma program.
Tutoring and Academic Support
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.
English Language Learning
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.
The College Program is an advanced training program we offer through a partnership with Northern Maine Community College. 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
Our Driver's Education program provides classroom and on-the-road instruction for students needing a Maine driver's license. Please note that the State of Maine requires a notarized birth certificate (no copies) before it will issue a driver's license to an applicant.
