Boys Totem Town
and Juvenile Detention Center

  • After 100 years of service Boys Totem Town (BTT)has closed.

    BTT is a residential program for up to 36 adolescent boys age 14-19 who have been committed by the court to treatment for committing offenses and demonstrating risky behavioral concerns in the community. Located in Saint Paul’s Battle Creek neighborhood, Boys Totem Town has been serving the Ramsey County community for more than 100 years.

    Boys Totem Town residents attend school Monday-Friday. Teachers are licensed by the State of Minnesota, and the curriculum is monitored by Saint Paul Public Schools. Students also have access to a guidance counselor, school social worker, para-professionals, and a school principal.

    Residents earn credits that will be recorded on their transcript. Credits will transfer when the student is reconnected with his community school.

    After students complete their stay at Boys Totem Town, school staff support their transition back to their home school or a new community.

    Parent support and involvement is highly encouraged.

    Questions or requests for additional information pertaining school-related issues can be directed to the school office at 651-266-5245.
