Our Academic Programs

Since our learners have a variety of educational needs, we offer a full range of services. There is something here for you!


English as a Second Language (ESL) is designed for those whose native language is not English and who want to learn to read, write, understand, and speak English.

Graduate Equivalency Diploma (GED) preparation is for adults who did not graduate from high school and want to earn a high school equivalency diploma. GED studies are also available in Spanish.

Adult Basic Education (ABE) is designed for adults who do not have a high school diploma but who want to learn or improve reading, writing and/or math skills. These classes are also available to learners who have a high school diploma or GED  but want a Math/ Reading/Writing “Tune-up” to hone their skills for professional or personal reasons.

We offer citizenship test preparation services for our learners.  Please contact our office for details.
