FREE* ESL CLASSES AT THE TROY LEARNING CENTER!

In-seat classes will begin the year with a mask requirement.  All staff and students will have to wear a mask while in any part of the building, including classrooms. If/when the Troy School District decides the mask mandate can end, we will follow their guidelines and provide updates on changing protocols.

 

REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED FOR FREE COURSES.

 

ESL tests for new students will be in-person

Registration: REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED. You will receive a confirmation email after you register online. Please check your junk/spam folder if you do not see it. If you are a NEW student, you will receive a separate email to schedule a pretest for English class placement after you complete registration. Please check your junk/spam folder if you do not see this email. If you are a returning student and took a test in the 2020-21 program, then you do not need to take a pretest for class placement. Tests will be in-person at the Troy Learning Center between Sept 1st and 8th. To be eligible for ESL classes, students must obtain a CASAS score between 187 and 235.  Students with scores below 187 and above 235 will be referred to another resource.
