The ESOL Program serves more than 250 students from all over the world. Most are immigrants or refugees from countries such as Nepal, Burma, Ukraine, India, Turkey, China, Somalia, Iraq, Dominican Republic, Sri Lanka, Poland, Sudan and Vietnam. Sometimes as many as 15 different ethnicities are represented in one class.

Students are diverse in every other way as well: age, educational background, and educational goals.

Some students come directly from high school; others have been in ESOL programs in the community; some have studied a lot of English in their countries. There are students who have had professions in their countries and wish to update their skills or change careers. Younger students are searching for the career that fits their personalities and values. Others participate in the program just to enhance their English skills. Whatever the goal, all students want to improve their English and continue on their chosen path as quickly as possible. We hope you'll come and join us!
