Educational Programs

QCUL provides its clients with access to opportunities for academic learning and personal development in a safe and supportive environment. Programs include:

Credit Recovery Services help at-risk high school students (9-12 grades) recover educational credits to transition to the next grade and/or graduate on time. Classes are offered online.

GED offers day and evening classes to out-of-school youth and adults seeking a high school equivalent certificate. Completers successfully pass a battery of five tests in Science, Mathematics, Social Studies, Language Arts/Writing and Reading. Currently QCUL is not offering these classes at its facilities. Interested persons may take the Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE) at our facility but will be referred to Waubonsee Community College for classes.

Project Ready provides high school students and their parents with guidance to make the students transition to college successful. This is accomplished through PSAT/SAT/ACT test preparation, college readiness workshops, a focus on academic excellence classes and college tours both in-state and out-of-state.

Tomorrow’s Scientists, Technicians, and Managers (TSTM) exposes minority middle and high school students (6-12) to STEM (Science, Technology, Business and Math) and business fields while also offering tutoring sessions, field trips, supervised projects and summer programming.

The Youth Leadership Program (YLP) summer program provides youth ages 13-17 with an opportunity to engage in activities related to leadership, development, decision-making, citizenship, and community service in peer-centered study groups. Youth also participate in job readiness and personal development workshops.
