2021, The First Chapter

As we begin a new year, many of us are grateful to leave the challenges that 2020 brought us in the past. One thing we may have overlooked are the blessings that all that chaos managed to deliver. So many of our students were able to participate in virtual learning at home, which we had not offered exclusively before the pandemic. Many people choose to make New Year's Resolutions on how they will change themselves and their lives for the better. January enrollment is often a booming time for our program due to these resolutions and our students wanting to continue their journey with us. Whether you would like to improve your English skills or work toward earning your High School Equivalency diploma, we have a fantastic staff to help you every step of the way. This semester we are offering both in person classes and virtual classes to fit the needs of our students like never before. We are excited to make new pathways to meet our student needs and help those same students find success in their lives.
