The objective of the Juvenile Academic and Vocational Education program is to reduce the number of individuals who re-offend by providing comprehensive academic education, vocational (career-technical) education, supplemental education, as well as treatment programs to help juvenile offenders earn a diploma or GED and develop acceptable socialization and employment skills.
Education programs for juveniles include core academic and career/technical preparation high school courses, general education development preparation, basic skills enhancement, and college preparation. All curriculum presented to students is infused with values-based character education. Supplemental services include library services, special education, English learner services, basic skills enhancement, high school credit work experience, and community service.
