Become a new US Citizen and improve your English with the help of our free English Language and Citizenship classes! US Citizens can vote, run for office, bring family members to the US, compete for more jobs, and access additional government benefits.

Our English Language and Citizenship classes are free to the public. The program is 12 weeks long with new classes starting every 3 weeks. During the class, you will learn US civics and history, English grammar, vocabulary, reading, and speaking, and other skills to support you in becoming a successful citizen of your community.

To qualify for the class, you must be 16 or older (not enrolled in school), an English language learner, and legally present in the United States.
