  • English as a Second Language (ESL)
  • English and mathematics
  • Life skills for student success
  • Basic computer skills
  • We now offer Civics and Citizenship. We also offer job search skills and career preparation courses.

Our facilities include a computer lab that allows students to work on improving writing, math, language as well as basic computer skills. We are located at Northern New Mexico College on the Española Campus.
