Each of the IDJJ facilities contains an alternative high school to serve the educational needs of youth. The high schools comprise School District #428. They offer the ability to earn a high school diploma or complete a GED and operate under the standards of the Ilinois State Board of Education. The schools also offer various career and technical education courses and training, and some higher education courses are available as well.
