The Juvenile Home Schools (JHS), operated by the Kalamazoo Regional Educational Service Agency (KRESA) provides the education related services in the KCJH.

JHS offers:

  • Certified Special Education Teachers

  • Small Class Size

  • Strong Interpersonal Relationships

  • Use of Instructional Strategies that Complement the Learning Styles of Students

  • Individualized Curriculum Designed to Meet Students' Needs

These elements combine to create an environment that allows students to experience school success. The goal of the JHS is to prepare students to become competent, socially responsible, life-long learners.

The Youth Center School provides educational programming for residents of the Detention Center. Students receive instruction in Math, Reading, Science, Social Studies, Life Skills and Computer and Technology, with an emphasis on social and school success behaviors.

The Intensive Learning Center (ILC) provides education for youth who reside in the community but are court ordered to attend school at the KCJH. The ILC is a highly structured, behavior based program where students earn the privilege of going home at night by displaying appropriate school behaviors. The ILC provides instruction in the core academic subjects as well as specialized personal and social growth oriented courses.
