Welcome To Diversified Education Services

Diversified Education Services (DES) was established in 2014 to provide alternatives to incarceration for pre and post sentenced low risk offenders.
As a result of increasing rates of recidivism, jail overcrowding, and the increasing costs for incarceration, the Directors of Diversified Education Services focused on the development of educational programs with rehabilitation as its goal.
Diversified Education Services offers classes via this website and in a classroom setting at Santa Ana College. For more information, please contact us via this link.
