Adult Programs

This Fall, SJS will be offering adult programming in a variety of topics via Zoom! Classes will be held once a week in the morning or evening. Get ready to take advantage of this opportunity to improve your skill set in a welcoming environment!

 

Classes begin: Week of August 30th.

Citizenship

The road to achieving citizenship can be confusing and difficult; St. Joseph Services offers assistance that can help ease the journey. Citizenship classes provide instruction on U.S. history, advanced English (reading, writing, and conversation), and other topics covered on U.S. citizenship tests. Students especially value SJS’s discretion and understanding of the challenges they face.
