Foundational Skills Institute

We regret to inform you that after more than 25 years at CCD, the Foundational Skills Institute will no longer be accepting new students. Along with several other metro area community college programs, CCD is unable to continue serving students with classes for high school equivalency (GED) test preparation and non-credit English as a second language (ESL). 

With only four full-time staff and 4-6 part-time instructors, FSI served close to 400 adults each year. Hundreds of students were able to increase their academic preparedness, finish their high school equivalency, or learn English well enough to transition to college or get a better job. With so many positive advancements, it is even more difficult to say goodbye.

We thank you for your support and wish you well.
