About KidsPeace Mesabi Academy

Though we are a correctional facility, we view the clinical/therapeutic component as a very important aspect of our program and utilize an interdisciplinary treatment team approach to gain a holistic view of the youth with whom we are working.

 KidsPeace Mesabi Academy, a subsidiary of KidsPeace, is licensed by the Minnesota Department of Corrections and is a member of the Minnesota Counsel of Child Caring Agencies (MCCCA). We offer services for delinquent and non-delinquent males ages 10–18, as well as Extended Juvenile Jurisdiction youth to age 21. KidsPeace Mesabi Academy offers a full continuum of services, which is based on the utilization of validated assessment tools such as the Youth Level of Service-Case Management Inventory (YLS-CMI), as well as evidence-based programming.
