The English Studies Program (ESP) is designed to support English Learners as they experience academic immersion in English. New arrivals are assessed to determine appropriate placement in mainstream humanities and corresponding ESP offerings. Small class sizes allow for individual attention to student needs. Additional support is available during evening study hall hours via the ESP Help Center and the Writing Center. ESP students are encouraged to speak English whenever possible to maintain and improve English proficiency.

A student’s continued enrollment in ESP is determined at the end of each year based on a combination of factors including: the student’s grades through the first two trimesters, the student’s end-of-year ESP assessment score, and teacher recommendations.
