Welcome to the ESL Program at College of the Canyons

The ESL Department at College of the Canyons has been helping students in the Santa Clarita Valley and beyond learn and improve their English for over 20 years.

Many of our students have gone into professional careers like nursing, teaching, and business. Others have continued their studies here at COC and at 4-year universities. Of course, all have improved their English, made friends, broadened their cultural awareness, and enjoyed their lives here in the United States.

Whatever your level of English, we can help you progress and reach your goals.

We have a sequence of classes over two programs to help you succeed. Our programs offer Non-Credit and Credit Classes

If you need additional assistance or have any further questions about our program, kindly contact us:

Dr. Heather Maclean, Credit and Non-Credit ESL Department Chair
