English as a Second Language (ESL)

Prep offers a full program in English as a Second Language (ESL) for international students. The study of English is supplemented by other courses as appropriate to the student's English facility. As the student's facility with English improves, and with each additional academic year, the student's integration into the regular curriculum is increased. Depending on the student's background, he may also be placed in a special ESL section of American Studies and/or Religious Studies. Study of a language other than English is usually not required for ESL students.
