Get ready for heading out on your own by starting today as you learn the skills that you will need, all while you still live at home. (And parents, this will be your most favorite class that your teen takes in school because you will benefit from your student moving toward independence and cooking for you for a change.) Come and join in the fun as you "Prepare for Independent Life" starting today. You will be so glad that you did.
