                    A Winning Partnership




JOB CORPS: Residential Career Training • Ages 16-24 • Funded by the U.S. Department of Labor

  THE WINNING STRATEGY
  • Texas Senate Bill 1395, approved June 17, 2005, allowed for the establishment of a high school diploma
    program under the supervision of the Texas Education Agency at the Gary Job Corps center.
  • The A. Edward Gary High School was dedicated by Texas Commissioner Shirley Neeley on May 22, 2006
    and enrollment began on August 2006.
  • If a high school dropout from your school enrolls in the A. Edward Gary High School you will not be assessed
    with a dropout penalty.
  • Your high school graduates can also enroll and obtain industry-recognized certifications in one of 24 career
    and technical education programs and enroll in college—all at no cost to the individual.
