Educational Classes and Programs Offered at MSPT

Mat-Su Pretrial offers educational programming to include adult basic education, GED, and life skills in order for individuals to improve interpersonal and academic skills, to successfully function within the institution, and to enhance community integration and economic self-sufficiency.

Classes and programs are presented in lengths ranging from seminars of 1 1/2 to 3 hrs, 1 to 3 days in length, to longer meetings of 1 1/2 hours for 15 sessions over 5 - 6 weeks. Class offerings are posted weekly in inmate dorms and inmates are then given the opportunity to request participation in those classes. The library is also available to them daily for study, reading and educational videos.

Classes are taught by the education coordinator and outside and inside volunteers and contractors. GED testing is also available to inmates. The education coordinator is the Chief Examiner for Mat-Su Pretrial.
