Cassadaga Job Corps Center is located in the heart of rural Chautauqua County, New York, just 50 miles south of Buffalo. Its 150-acre campus sits atop a hill overlooking the beautiful Cassadaga Lakes and is a great place to focus and get an education.
In 1913, Elizabeth N. Newton of Fredonia, New York, willed $150,000 to be used to build a tuberculosis hospital in Chautauqua County, NY. To this end, 176 acres of the old Gilbert Pierson farm was purchased, construction began, and the new Newton Memorial Hospital admitted its first patient in 1920. By the 1950s, considerable advances in the treatment of tuberculosis made the hospital no longer necessary for the region. The land and buildings were sold by the county in 1959 to the Assumptionist Fathers, and the site was a seminary called Our Lady of Lourdes from 1960–1967. In 1977, the U.S. Government purchased the facility, and the Cassadaga Job Corps Center opened in March of 1978.
Our campus' residential living facilities can house male students in one dorm with communal bathrooms and female students in two dorms with private bathrooms. Honors and independent-living rooms are available for students who earn the privilege. Residential students live with up to three roommates and enjoy the following amenities:
- laundry facilities
- TV lounges
- computer labs
- vending machines
We also serve non-residential students.
Students stay in separate male and female dormitories. There are up to four students to each dorm room. Your room will be assigned to you upon arrival at the center.
Job Corps values diversity and will provide you with opportunities to live and interact with people of many different backgrounds.
