Administrator for Educational Services
The North Dakota Youth Correctional Center has a State and NCA/CASI accredited junior high and high school. It is our hope that each student will grow both educationally and personally during his/her stay.
A student does not lose ground during his/her stay at YCC with regard to earning credits toward a grade completion and/or graduation. The academic and vocational structure provides an opportunity to resume the prior school course work and/or create a new educational plan with goals that will help achieve a successful re-entry into the next educational placement or completion of the studentís high school education.
The teachers at YCC are an exceptional group of educators who are committed to helping each student grow intellectually and emotionally. They set healthy boundaries, and hold high expectations while offering each student the opportunity, should he/she choose, to gain skills that will allow him/her to experience success both at YCC and in his/her future. Our hope is that each student will take advantage of YCCís educational program, which can help prepare each student for extraordinary future opportunities that are within his/her reach.
"Our mission is to provide student-centered educational opportunities which challenge all students to reach their potential and to become responsible citizens."
