English Classes 

We offer five level of English Classes. Through this class student progress is tracked to help set and achieve each individuals’ learning goals.

Levels 1 & 2 of English classes cover beginning English skills such as, pronunciation, speaking, listening, writing, and reading.

Students are actively involved and co-create the class curriculum with their teachers. La Casa centers student voices in this class and throughout the organization so that students can have a voice in and take part in the decision making process for their own learning. Students express their learning needs and play an active role in selecting the content areas they want to cover and that are important for them to achieve their learning goals. This model supports community, confidence and leadership among students in and outside the classroom. 

Levels 3-5 expand on skills developed in Levels 1 and 2. Students continue to collaborate with instructors to ensure that lessons are relevant and interesting and prepare students to use advanced English skills in their daily lives, and in professional settings.


Earning a GED can transform lives! According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, individuals with a High School Diploma or other equivalent degrees like a GED, can increase their employment rates, qualify for more job opportunities and earn higher wages than those without.  Additionally, these same individuals are able to access opportunities for higher education.

Pre-GED classes at La Casa are the first step toward earning a GED. Pre-GED classes support students by developing literacy and math skills in preparation for GED classes. Classes are conducted in both English and Spanish to additionally support students in developing their English reading, writing and conversational skills.
