The Dallas County Juvenile Department Educational Services manages the Dallas County Juvenile Justice Alternative Education Program (DCJJAEP) and the Academy for Academic Excellence. Students between the ages of 10 and 17 attend school at one of the five Academy for Academic Excellence campuses or at the DCJJAEP campus. The Dallas County Juvenile Board serves as the school board for the Academy for Academic Excellence.

The purpose of the Dallas County Juvenile Department Educational Services is to ensure that that our students leave school with:

  • A set of moral values — honesty, integrity and good judgment.
  • A complement of basic skills — linguistic, analytical, mathematical, scientific, artistic, physical, and social.
  • An inquiring and discriminating mind and a desire for knowledge.
  • Strong self-esteem and high personal expectation.
  • Tolerance and respect for others.
