Every year, students from over a dozen countries come to Marianapolis to improve their English language skills and take college preparatory courses alongside American peers. Our goal is to educate our ESL students at every level, helping integrate them into mainstream English courses at the appropriate grade level.
High standards, small class sizes, talented faculty, and experiential learning - these components are the foundation of the Marianapolis Prep ESL program. While some students arrive at Marianapolis knowing little English, they are empowered within months to converse comfortably in classroom and social settings. Our ESL faculty are trained in foreign language instruction as well as foundational subjects such as English, Math and Science. Additionally, these members of the Marianapolis faculty commit extensive extra-curricular time to ESL students, traveling with them on annual American cultural explorations.
