Academic Skills Program. The Academic Skills Program's supportive and challenging environment provides intensive English instruction in the skills required for success in American college or graduate programs. This program is ideal for anyone whose goal is to apply to an English-language university. There are courses in the morning, afternoon, and in the evening.

In the full-time Academic program, students at the high-beginning through advanced levels take classes which focus on writing, reading, grammar and oral skills for a total of 18 Academic hours per week on 4 or 5 mornings.
- Afternoon. Students who would like to study in the afternoon, may choose from two different types of classes: full-time Academic program and the Advanced Workshops, students who have completed level 8 (the most advanced level in the regular academic program), or place high enough on the placement test, may take from one to three of the following workshops: Advanced Writing, Reading and Grammar; Advanced Research and Library Skills; Advanced - Academic Speaking Skills.

The Professional English Academy offers advanced level professional and business English courses for non-native English speakers.

The Professional English Academy is ideal for professionals with limited time who feel they can benefit from improving their accuracy and efficiency in communicating in English.
