Victory Corps

The Victory Corps was an American program during the Second World War that provided training to male and female high school students. The Victory Corps was established on September 25, 1942, by Commissioner of Education John W. Studebaker.

The program focused on skills relevant to the war effort, ranging from physical conditioning to more specialized skills depending on the desired branch of the armed forces, such as trigonometry for the U.S. Navy. Broadly, the Corps emphasized "science, mathematics, and physical education".

As the war drew to a close in Europe and Asia, the Corps was gradually phased out starting in June 1944.
