Junior Coal Academy

It’s important to us to assist students in the pursuit of their higher education goals, so we’re proud to partner with many of our service area high schools and technology centers to host Junior Coal Academies for high school students interested in mine engineering, mining technology or a closely related field. While students in our programs need to select a qualifying career pathway as they enter the ninth or 10th grade, and demonstrate satisfactory progress, our program focuses on students as they start their junior year.
