    English as a Second Language (ESL)


    English as a Second language (ESL) courses provide English language learners with life skills and the opportunity to improve speaking, listening, reading, writing, vocabulary development and grammar.  Classes are available during the morning and evening hours. 

    Currently, ESL classes operate on a “Managed Enrollment” program.  Once enrollment is closed, no new students will be enrolled in the class until the next 9 week session begins.  Students are registered on a first come, first served basis. Please be advised priority will be given to continuing students.  New students are required to complete a placement test and attend a scheduled orientation prior to enrollment.

    Registration Fee Information


    There is limited space available.  Students are registered on a first-come, first-served basis. If your work schedule or family responsibilities change and make it hard to come to class often, talk to your teacher about transferring to a class at a different time.  We may drop students who do not attend regularly, comes late to class, leaves early, or who are absent for two weeks.
