The inmates housed at South Central Correctional located at 555 Forest Ave in Clifton, TN are placed according to their custody level (determined by a number of factors including the past criminal history and the length of their sentence). There are ample educational and vocational training programs for all inmates, especially ones that show a willingness to learn new things that will prepare them for a better life when they are released. The mission is to promote and prepare the offender to leave in better shape than when they arrived, giving them the best chance to never come back and thus lower the state's recidivism rate.

This facility is currently run by the private company CoreCivic under a contract with the Tennessee Department of Correction. Inmates at this facility can receive substance abuse treatment through the Residential Drug Abuse Program. Work programs, medical, dental and mental health treatment is available to all inmates. Inmates here are given the opportunity to take adult basic education, literacy courses, and earn a GED during their incarceration. Inmates can also take career management for success courses which help train and prepare inmates for obtaining a job once they are released. Vocational training opportunities here include landscaping, information technology, carpentry, plumbing, and masonry.

Telephone credits can be purchased in "whole" dollar amounts only. The minimum telephone credit purchase amount is $5.00.
Academic programs include GED, Adult Basic Education and literacy tutoring. Vocational programs include Career Management for Success, carpentry, construction core, electrical, grounds keeping, information technology, masonry and plumbing.

Within the first two weeks of arrival at a CoreCivic correctional facility, every inmate will attend the facility’s orientation program and receive a copy of the facility’s inmate handbook.
The inmate handbook includes all the information an inmate needs to start a productive life inside the facility and remain connected with family or lawyers.
