St. John’s Youth Academy is a secure, high-risk residential treatment facility that provides specialized mental health treatment to adolescent males ages 14 to 18 that have been committed to the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice. Our program excels in developing young men into productive individuals through the focus on family, morals, values, and healthy living. Through the course of nine to twelve months, young men at St. John’s will receive specialized treatment for an array of behavior problems, mental health and substance abuse overlay services, educational and vocational services, and comprehensive transitional and discharge planning. Our mission is to maintain safety in the community through effective holistic treatment of the offender. This is achieved through the use of a positive culture that fosters respect, individuality, and enhances the strengths of each young man that it serves.
