Learning English

ESL Program

After arriving in August, students take an English language proficiency test and are assigned to appropriate ESL classes based on their English proficiency. Our goal is to support each student while they work to improve their English skills.
St. Mary's School prepares students to succeed in their academic coursework and earn good scores on the SAT and TOEFL. We pay particular attention to developing essays, reading critically, discussing class topics, and giving oral presentations.
