Get Personalized Instruction

The ESL programs offers a choice of four modules:

  • Options & choices
  • Achievement & Success
  • Decision Making & Problem Solving
  • Graduation & Career


Modules are similar to classes, but are project-based, and personalized based on the college and career goals of each individual. All Modules integrate listening, speaking, reading, writing and grammar and technology based on the needs and goals of each student. Personalized instruction allows students to repeat modules to ensure they have successfully reached their learning goals. While the project may remain the same or similar, each student's individual project during a repeat module may be different and more in depth.

Collaborative Learning Lab

The Collaboratory is a collaborative learning lab that allows small groups of students to practice their English and get help with assignments from instructors and assistants. It's open 12:00-1:30 p.m. Monday - Friday. On Fridays the collaboratory is held in the computer lab to assist students with technology tools necessary for classroom and career success. The cost is $200, and students must be enrolled in a module to attend the Collaboratory.
