The Kissimmee Youth Academy is a medium to low-security detention center located at 2330 New Beginnings Road Kissimmee, FL that is operated locally by the Juvenile Justice Department and holds youths awaiting the determination of punishment for the crimes which they are accused. Most of the adolescents are here for less than two years.

The Kissimmee Youth Academy is a staff- and hardware-secure program that provides substance abuse overlay services and mental health overlay services treatment for each youth as appropriate. Additionally, Kissimmee Youth Academy provides a program for youth with borderline developmental disability (BDD) and developmental disability (DD) diagnoses. Admission is determined on a case-by-case basis.

Program treatment services also include social and life skills, vocational training and on-site educational classes. All clothing and hygiene items are provided.

The length of stay depends on the youth's assessed risk to reoffend and the progress the youth has made in the program toward reducing criminogenic needs and risk factors, addressing the youth's treatment needs, and increasing the youth's protective factors.

The anticipated, average length of stay is nine to 12 months, depending on the youth's pace of success in completing his individualized therapeutic treatment plan and goals.


Academic & Career Education:

Kissimmee Youth Academy is a Type 2 program offering English, Math, Science, Social Studies, and one elective course. The elective course is typically used to provide additional reading assistance to needy students or vocational training.

Education and vocational services are provided through the Osceola County School District. In addition to traditional, direct instruction, the education staff uses the PLATO lab as an online credit recovery option in appropriate cases for youth in the program.

This program serves as a GED® test site.

HIGH-RISK RESIDENTIAL - Ages 14 -21

Programs or program models at this commitment level are residential and do not allow youth to have access to the community, except that temporary release providing community access for up to 72 continuous hours may be approved by a court for a youth who has made successful progress in his or her program in order for the youth to attend a family emergency or, during the final 60 days of his or her placement, to visit his or her home, enroll in school or a career and technical education program, complete a job interview, or participate in a community service project. High-risk residential facilities are hardware-secure with perimeter fencing and locking doors. Residential facilities at this commitment level shall have no more than 90 beds each, including campus-style programs, unless those campus-style programs include more than one treatment program using different treatment protocols, and have facilities that coexist separately in distinct locations on the same property. Facilities at this commitment level shall provide 24-hour awake supervision, custody, care, and treatment of residents. Youth assessed and classified for this level of placement require close supervision in a structured residential setting. Placement in programs at this level is prompted by a concern for public safety that outweighs placement in programs at lower commitment levels. The staff at a facility at this commitment level may seclude a child who is a physical threat to himself or herself or others. Mechanical restraint may also be used when necessary. The facility may provide for single cell occupancy, except that youth may be housed together during prerelease transition.
