We offer a wide range of classes, from English as a Second Language (ESL) and Basic Spanish Literacy to Computer Classes and High School Equivalencies.
We offer three levels of ESL classes, all with a civics focus. ESL classes teach students speaking, listening, reading, and writing. Classes are based on Brazilian educator Paulo Freire’s participatory approach to education: students’ voices and life experiences greatly inform the curriculum. Learning is student-centered and hands-on as students have an active role in class content and program evaluation.
With the technology sector growing larger every day and the need for computer skills in almost every job, MUA is proud to offer three levels of computer classes for our students.
High School Equivalency Testing (Hi-SET) in Spanish (previously GED)
MUA prepares students in the five subject areas of the Hi-SET so they can take these exams in Spanish: reading, writing, science, social studies, and mathematics. A high school diploma opens up many possibilities for employment, higher education, and personal fulfillment.
