For adults whose first language is not English, ESOL classes provide instruction in English listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Class levels range from basic to advanced. TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) and citizenship classes are also available. The program also offers family literacy classes in which parents and children learn together “under one roof.” Adults can earn their GED® diploma or improve their English skills as their children prepare for school success in a quality learning environment.

Our program encompasses seven (7) levels from Beginning to Advanced. Based on your test results in orientation, you will be placed in the level that corresponds with your current language skills. Our program runs continuously and you are welcome and encouraged to learn with us year-round.

You are required to attend the ESOL program for a minimum of 40 instructional hours and to take a progress test as required by the program for continued participation. 

Once registered, students who remain absent for 90 consecutive days will have to wait until the next July 1 in order to re-enter the program.

Students taking classes online will need headphones and a microphone. If you have headphones that include a microphone, those will work fine.  Students will have to meet the minimum required hours of practice online:

  1. If you are enrolled in the online class only, you will be expected to complete a minimum of 12 hours of coursework each week.
  2. If you are enrolled in both a classroom class and the online class, you will be expected to complete a minimum of six (6) hours of coursework online in addition to your classroom hours.

New students must attend a two-day orientation. They will take a test, fill out a registration form, and register for class. Students must attend both days of orientation.  Bring something with your current address on it. Please call to reserve your space and to learn more details about our schedule.
