English as a Second Language (ESL) Program

English as a Second Language (ESL) Tutoring Program

Saint James School is Montgomery's independent school leader in providing a comprehensive English as a Second Language (ESL) tutoring program for international students. English Language Learners (ELLs) in elementary, middle, and high school are tutored by an experienced instructor to help facilitate a successful transition to an English-speaking school. Students meet with the instructor in small, age-appropriate groups on campus during the school day.

This program provides academic assistance for core classes, and also helps students strengthen their English language proficiencies in the areas of reading, writing, speaking, and listening. As a result, classroom instruction is more meaningful and students adapt more quickly to our college preparatory academic environment. In addition, enhanced English skills allow students to make friends and become involved in extra-curricular programs and activities thus enriching their overall Saint James School experience.
