GED/High School Diploma
One of our top goals at Talking Leaves 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 Talking Leaves can enroll in our GED and high school diploma programs.
Our GED program features computer-based GED preparation and book-based training. Students in this program receive one-on-one tutoring, peer tutoring, and self-motivated study. Students must achieve the objectives set by the State of Oklahoma Department of Education to receive their GED certificates.
Our students also have the opportunity to earn their high school diplomas. To get a high school diploma, a student must achieve 13 core academic credits and 10 elective credits and complete a career technical training program at our center.
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 and reading 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.
