The Corrections Special School District (CSSD) provides a complete continuum of intake, guidance and educational services. This “Special School District” is state-recognized and self-funded, and iis broken down into two distinct operational areas: the Granite State High School and the Career and Technical Education Center. 

  • Granite State High School (GSHS) offers academic programming opportunities to inmate students at NH State Prison for Women. Inmates have the opportunity for K-12 education, High School Equivalency (Hi-SET) preparation, Hi-SET testing, and classes that help the inmate student work toward a high school diploma. Post secondary offerings, either in class or through correspondence format, are available as well.
  • Career and Technical Education Center (CTEC) offers programming opportunities at the NHSP/Men (Concord) and the NHSP/Women (Goffstown) facilities. CTEC provides classroom and on-the-job laboratory training to enhance skills in several employment areas. Certificates are awarded for successful completion, with program length ranging from one to two years.

Other programs available include:

  • Thinking for a Change (T4C): an innovative, evidence-based cognitive behavioral curriculum provided by the National Institute of Corrections (NIC). T4C includes cognitive restructuring, and social and problem-solving skills development. 
  • Seeking Safety (SS): an integrated treatment for individuals with a dual diagnosis of PTSD and Substance Use Disorder (SUD), SS focuses on stabilization and safety from self-destructive behaviors and trauma re-enactments. SS names, validates and connects past traumas and substance use, while remaining focused on examples of one’s current life for establishing safe coping behaviors. 
  • Religious Services: Regular worship, group or personal study, and pastoral counseling are offered throughout the inmate’s time in prison. Dietary restrictions consistent with documented religious beliefs are reasonably accommodated. Worship services or group meetings are available for the following faiths: Roman Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Muslim, Jehovah’s Witness, Buddhist, Neo-Pagan, and Native American Sacred Circle.
