The NNJDS Education Program is located within the Newport News Juvenile Detention Center (NNJDC), a secure facility. The JDC houses both male and female students ages 10-17, who have been detained by law enforcement and/or by a court order from a judge.
All students enrolled in the NNJDS Education Program are enrolled in Newport News Public Schools (NNPS). All students are expected to attend classes regularly. They are graded on their work and participation in all classes. Once the student is discharged from the NNJDC, they are withdrawn from the Education Program and their grades are transferred back to their home school.
