Free classes for adults
The goal of the Evening Study Center is to support parents in communicating in English so that they can be more involved in their child's education. We offer six levels of English taught by certified Garland ISD teachers.
Our study center supports family members of Emergent Bilingual and Immigrant students who want to earn a high school diploma equivalency and better career opportunities. Through our partnership with Dallas County Community College, families can work with us to prepare for the Spanish GED test.
We offer a Civics class for Emergent Bilingual and Immigrant family members who plan to apply for naturalization (citizenship).
Families of our Emergent Bilingual and Immigrant students can also participate in a technology class where participants learn basic and intermediate computer skills.
