Our 2017 International Friendship Celebration (IFC) was held on Monday, February 27th. It was a celebration of diverse cultures that showcased a parade of flags, folk dancing, and indoor and outdoor games. View our new IFC Vodcast here.
ESOL Promotion Ceremony
Our ESOL promotion ceremony was held on April 15, right after CASAS testing. Our students received their certificates on stage and had their photos taken. A student is promoted when they go up to the next language level. Many students went up 2 levels. We would like to extend our congratulations to all of the students and to the faculty for making success possible.
Student Success Stories
Our students come from all walks of life. Their goals are as diverse as their backgrounds. Read some of their success stories.
