Cheltenham Youth Detention Center

Cheltenham Youth Detention Center

The Cheltenham Youth Detention Center originally opened in 1870. In 1937, it was known as the Cheltenham School for Boys. Twelve years later, the facility was renamed Boys' Village of Maryland. The facility was called the Cheltenham Youth Facility from 1992 until 2016 when the new facility opened as Cheltenham Youth Detention Center.

Located in Prince George's County, Cheltenham serves as a secure detention facility for male and female youth who are waiting to go to court or be placed in a treatment facility. Cheltenham primarily serves youth from Prince George's, Montgomery, Anne Arundel, Calvert, Charles and St. Mary's Counties.

Cheltenham provides dietary, medical, educational and counseling services as well recreational space. In addition to receiving services, youth residing at the facility attend school in the facility year round, five days a week for six hours a day.
