Citizenship Classes

Preparing for the U.S. Naturalization exam is no easy task. These classes are interactive, making learning the material needed for the exam interesting and entertaining. We cover everything from civics to the format of the exam, teaching participants their responsibilities to the local community and how to keep it more secure and stable. These classes fill up fast, but most graduates of this program pass the exam and become naturalized citizens of the United States.

Spanish Language - GED Classes

Many jobs require a high school diploma or the equivalent. Our classes prepare individuals who have not completed their high school education to take the four basic state exams–science, math, reading and grammar, and social studies–in order to obtain their certificate. The teachers motivate the students to complete their preparation and walk with them through the process of the exams.
