A New Year And MT JAVA Students Lead The Way!
Thank you KAPLAN UNIVERSITY and ATCHLEY FORD! – MT JAVA students and staff would like to thank Kaplan University and Atchley Ford for their generous support of our Summer Service Program. Students who completed the required in-class program hours and local community service learning hours with improved grades were invited to spend some time in New Orleans volunteering at Beyond the Veil Battered Women’s Recovery Shelter. This project was designed to broaden student world views and encourage a greater appreciation of service to others. Additionally, students were able to apply skills and knowledge gained throughout their academic year and during local Habitat for Humanity service projects to help with Mrs. Patricia Jackson (aka Ms. Pat), founder and director renovate and beautify her women’s shelter.

WAY TO GO MT JAVA STUDENTS!!! You were great!
It’s amazing what our community’s MT JAVA students can accomplish! Youth empowerment through Civic leadership in the community, Academic responsibility, and Personal accountability (C.A.P.)
Our mission is to improve civic, academic, and personal performance and graduation rates, and community responsibilities among students most at risk while empowering them to reach their maximum potential. With the aid of staff, community, and volunteers, students will be better prepared to excel in high school and post high school while learning to overcome societal stereotypes, limitations, possible parental absences, lowered expectations, or challenges in education while growing and demonstrating their leadership skills. This will be achieved by fostering partnerships with existing schools, community leaders, businesses, and by creating new evidence-based programs to develop a comprehensive, community-based network of services and stakeholders among Village supporters.
