The Highpoint Department of Corrections instituted a literacy program in 2007. The primary purpose of the program is to increase the literacy levels of inmates who are currently incarcerated in the Highpoint Regional Corrections Facility. The program consists of supervised reading sessions for inmates in which the inmates read with a tutor for 1 hour twice per week. Inmates volunteer to participate in the program and 30% of the 2,
000 inmates participate in the program. Inmates were given a reading assessment upon beginning the program and receive a new assessment each year.
