The Adult Education ESL (AESL) program provides six levels of ESL instruction from Basic Literacy to Advanced.  Additionally, we offer a course in citizenship that prepares students for success at their naturalization interview. AESL students have access to free tutoring and counseling services. The AESL program proudly serves approximately 2,000 students per year.

*Students can earn CDCP (Career Development and College Preparation) certificates in Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced AESL levels after receiving a passing grade in two courses. We also offers a CDCP certificate in AESL for the Workplace after passing two courses.
