English as a Second Language (ESL) classes are for non-native English speaking immigrants, refugees, and citizens to learn how to read, write, speak, and understand English better. Digital and computer literacy is also a focus in ESL classrooms.

ESL classes are designed for beginning, intermediate, and advanced English language learners. These advanced-level classes prepare students to enter a GED or High School Completion course, college level classes, or professional technical programs.
