International Students – We offer a 4 level ESL program broken down by the following criteria:
- ESL 1 – Students have no knowledge of the English language
- ESL 2 – Students can do two of the following fluently: read, write, understand, or speak the English language.
- ESL 3 – Students can do three of the following fluently: read, write, understand, or speak the English language.
- ESL 4 – Students can read, write, understand, and speak the English language completely and need to be introduced to American culture.
** We do not offer ESL classes on their own. In other words, we will not create an I-20 only for ESL classes. WE ARE NOT A LANGUAGE SCHOOL. We are a state approved Christian private jr. high/high school. ESL is taken alongside are other coursework for extra work in studying learning English with particular emphasis on a student’s verbal skills. 1st year international students are asked to take a 6 week summer session course in ESL offered by the school to get a continuity of practice speaking and learning English but only students who are currently enrolled at the school may take that summer session course **
