2021 Online ESL Programs

We are excited to offer our Online ESL Programs in both July and August 2021 for students who are keen on improving their English skills. Our online courses are designed to improve your English language skills from the comfort of your own home, or wherever it is most convenient.

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the difficult decision to cancel all on-campus boarding summer programs in 2021.
