This month Mount Juliet Academy has been very busy. We celebrated Martin Luther King day by having a lunch and watching Dr. King’s iconic “I Have a Dream” speech. The youth also began a new independent living program Mount Juliet Academy has started: Journey to Independence. This program will walk the 16 and 17 year olds through independent living skills like learning how to complete a job application, complete a resume, and how to keep track of important documents. The month concluded with our first family day of 2021! The nursing department was able to share facts about our program and answer any questions the families had!
