The Orlando Intensive Youth Academy serves 16 males between the ages of 12 and 18,  in a non-secure residential commitment program. The program provides intensive mental health services, special needs mental health services, social and life skills, vocational training, and on-site educational classes.

The program model is based on a cognitive behavioral approach incorporating evidence-based treatment practices and restorative justice principles. Youth receive weekly individual therapy and monthly family therapy sessions.  A licensed psychologist completes assessments and provides monthly follow-ups.

The anticipated average length of stay depends on the youth's pace of success in completing the individualized treatment plan and goals.

Orlando Intensive Youth Academy is a Type 2 program offering English, Math, Science, Social Studies, Reading and one elective course.

Education services are provided by the Orange County School District.
