English Language Acquisition

If you would like to improve your English language skills, our English Language Acquisition (ELA) program provides English language instruction in speaking, listening, reading, writing, and college readiness. These skills can help you prepare for the transition to high school completion, College and Career Bridge, college certificate and degree programs, and employment.

Who is eligible?

  • Individuals with limited English skills who are age 19 or older OR who have graduated from high school are eligible to enroll in ELA classes.
  • Individuals age 16-18 who have not graduated from high school may enroll after providing a high school release form (obtainable from the high school in your current district), or if homeschooled, a notarized statement of homeschooling.
  • Individuals with a student or au pair (F1, M1, or J1) visa should contact the International Student Office for information on class options.

What is the cost?

ELA tuition is $25 per quarter. You may take more than one ELA class at no extra cost. A tuition waiver is available for those who qualify.
