Many inmates lack education, a key component in avoiding re-incarceration. Lexington Correctional Center offers literacy courses as well as Pre-High School Equivalency and High School Equivalency diplomas. Although not provided with state funding, college courses are also available to inmates who can pay for them, or those who have alternative funding or scholarships.
LARC offers Thinking for a Change, Moral Reconation Therapy, and Associates 4 Success programs to address thinking, judgment errors, and relationships linked with criminal thinking/behavior.
LCC inmates can get technical training through a CareerTech Skills Center on site, which trains them for workforce entry after release. CareerTech also helps inmates find skill-related employment after release.
Courses include Auto Service Technology; Cabinet Making; CEU Code Update; Journeyman Licensing, Licensed Trades; and Transportation, Distribution and Logistics for Warehouses
