South Mountain Secure Treatment Unit (SMSTU) provides secure programming for adjudicated delinquent male youth who generally are identified as aggressive youth who have experienced difficulty adjusting to other placements and have extensive placement histories as well as providing services for sexual offenders. SMSTU is located in Franklin County.
The facility offers opportunities for youth to participate in a work training program. These programs allow youth to earn money for use in paying restitution, court costs or other financial obligations. Youth participating in the work training program are also afforded the opportunity to donate money to charities to repair damage done to the community in accordance with the Balanced and Restorative Justice Principles.
The Tuscarora Intermediate Unit #3 provides the educational services and youth participating in the school program can earn either a high school diploma or GED.
