One of our top goals at Tongue Point Job Corps is to ensure that every qualified student obtains their GED or high school diploma prior to leaving the center. When students arrive at our center, we order official transcripts from their hometown high schools, assess their reading and math skills, and create an individualized plan for earning a GED or a diploma.
We provide full preparation for the state GED exams, which our students take at nearby Clatsop Community College. The five GED exams include Writing Skills, Social Studies, Science, Interpreting Literature and the Arts, and Math. We help also help student master study skills and test-taking strategies. GED students with high scores also earn credit waivers toward their high school diplomas.
Students have the opportunity to earn their high school diplomas at our Tongue Point High School. It is accredited by the Northwest Association of Schools and Colleges and is registered as an alternative school through our local school district. To receive a high school diploma, students must meet academic requirements and complete a career technical training program.
