HABIT Program

In the fall of 2010, SJNCS partnered with the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine’s HABIT program in offering animal therapy to our students. St. John Neumann is proud to have HABIT dogs join our faculty and staff to support our school children in the areas of reading, responsibility, and respecting God’s creations. The dogs also supply plenty of affection, emotional support, and reassurance to reluctant readers and/or students affected by anxiety or other emotional stress. SJNCS embraced the Ruff Reading program, sponsored by HABIT, to encourage our student population to grow in reading and other academic areas, as well as social and life skills. Through the participation of these dogs and handlers, reluctant learners enjoy the experience of learning in the company and support of a furry friend with an open ear.

Visit the HABIT page for more information.
