Study English as a Second Language

We invite you to study in three levels of ESL classes to improve English language skills and prepare for college and/or work opportunities. (A reading test determines placement.) Our ESL for Transitions class prepares students for college and career pathways. Students with diplomas or degrees from other countries can work with our team to enroll in college ESL or training programs.
