Army invades Virginia College in Jacksonville

May 10, 2011

More than 60 U.S. Army Recruiters from Charleston to St. Augustine recently had a quarterly training session at the Virginia College campus in Jacksonville, Fla.

This event helped to cement the college's growing partnership with the Army. Virginia College works with recruits and current soldiers to improve test scores on the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB). Various scores on the ASVAB are required for entry and promotion in all military branches.

Similar programs have recently been launched at several other Virginia College campuses including Chattanooga, Huntsville and Macon through the Military Student Center, a multifunctional organization serving military personnel at Virginia College, Golf Academy of America, Ecotech Institute, and the online programs of Virginia College. These career colleges are owned and operated by Education Corporation of America (ECA).
