Adult Education Programs
NICE offers ELL classes at six different levels ranging from beginning literacy to high intermediate. We utilize the Ventures Series by Cambridge University Press as well as a wide range of materials used by teachers in the classrooms. Classes are offered during morning and evening hours. Students come from all walks of life with specific English proficiency skills and our curriculum focuses on addressing a wide variety of needs, including reading, writing, speaking, and life skills.
Citizenship Preparation Classes
NICE offers Citizenship Preparation classes twice a week. These classes are taught by a dedicated group of volunteers that provide group instruction and one-on-one tutoring. Classes focus on teaching students the exact information they need to know in order to successfully pass the US Citizenship exam.
HiSET Preparation Classes
Students learn about Language Arts (reading and writing), Social Studies, Science, and Math from volunteer teachers. Many students in NICE’s pre-high school eviquvalency program are non-native speakers who face the challenge of language barriers and adapting to a different educational system. Classes are focused on increasing and improving students’ skills in order for them to be able to advance far enough to pass the HiSET exam.
