Adult Education Programs

English as a Second Language (ESL) Class

Adults in this program work to improve their English speaking, reading and writing skills through activities and assignments.  This class focuses on helping parents develop skills to gain employment and help their children in school.

Spanish HSE Diploma Class

Need to earn your High School Equivalency (HSE) diploma?  Classes are taught in Spanish to help prepare you for the HSE test.  Spanish HSE classes are also available in the evenings.

For Spanish HSE, contact: Iveth Moreno, 209-672-6656, imoreno@lqslc.com

Conversational English Classes

Practice makes perfect! Students sharpen their English speaking skills in this pop up conversation class. Students are able to practice their English with other English-learners and dedicated staff.

As funding becomes available we open classes in different areas in Modesto or Riverbank.

Citizenship Preparation Class 

Prepare for your citizenship test in one of our pop up citizenship classes.  Students are able to practice their English while learning about government and preparing for their test.

Family Literacy

Parent and Child Time (PACT) Class

Parents who support their child’s learning contribute to their child’s successes both in school and in life. The PACT component allows parents to interact together as a family unit.

PACT classes are offered in some of the same locations where we offer ESL classes. They typically start in the spring immediately following the end of the ESL program. Parents work together with their kids and participate in activities following different educational themes.

Kids Club Program

Bring your child ages 3-12 to our program while you attend our classes.  A majority of our sites provide free childcare for the parents attending our classes. Our staff not only babysits the kids, but helps prepare them for school and/or provide help with schoolwork. Following a set of weekly themes, the kids work on different educational crafts while developing socials skills and pre-k skills.
