Adult Education Program
Free Adult English for Speakers of Other Language (ESOL) Classes

The program helps non-native English speakers develop proficiency in grammar, reading, listening, speaking and writing skills as well as building students skills for success in college and the workplace. The program also provides ongoing advisory services to students. Classes are currently held online via Zoom. Students must have a computer or tablet with internet connection in order to participate. 

Prospective students can register in our waiting list. Due to high volume of applicants, space is limited.  When space is available, students are invited to an orientation session and to take a placement test. Students are placed in class based on their scores and program availability.


The ESL orientation is usually held in August and January.

Students will be chosen for class on a first come first serve basis.
