Arizona Department of Juvenile Corrections (ADJC) is a state agency of Arizona, headquartered in Downtown Phoenix.[1]

Adobe Mountain School is the only secure facility managed by the agency and is an associate member of the Arizona Interscholastic Association.[2][3] While Adobe Mountain School North has units for boys and girls, Adobe Mountain School South has units for boys.[2]

The agency operated the Southwest Regional Juvenile Corrections Complex, a 200-bed complex in Buckeye[4] scheduled to open in 1997. It was originally supposed to be for $190.5 million, but it went $19 million over budget.[5] Eagle Point School was in the complex.[6] The facility closed in 2009.[7]

The ADJC has gone through 3 different directors in the past 3 years.
