Incarcerated Educational Program

As part of our commitment to provide learning opportunities to all members of the community, we offer an Incarcerated Youth Program in partnership with the Tompkins County Jail.  Housed in the jail at 779 Warren Road, Ithaca, this service offers educational classes to learners up to 21 years of age while they are incarcerated. Coursework can be submitted directly to our instructional staff, or if no coursework is provided, TST instructors work with students on enhancing the skills necessary to complete the Test Assessing Secondary Completion (TASC) credential, formerly the GED.

Our goal is to build on the academic knowledge, and skills necessary to become successful and productive community members.  The Incarcerated Youth Program is dedicated to promoting academic progress and fostering a climate that supports each student’s development and realization of their full potential.
