Loretto Federal Correctional Institution provides its inmates with a number of educational opportunities. Adult Basic Education (ABE), General Education Development (GED), English as a Second Language (ESL), a nonresidential substance abuse program, Adult Continuing Education, and a Parenting Program are just a few of the programs available. Previously, a UNICOR program was established to provide employment opportunities for convicts; however, this initiative has been discontinued. There are other services for mental health, dental health, medical health, and social welfare at the facility.
