Trained by the United States Office of Citizenship and Immigration, our instructor will teach students about the naturalization process as outlined in the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) requirements. Weekly classes focus on the rights and responsibilities of citizenship, the civics exam questions, U.S. history and government, and the naturalization interview. The necessary qualifications and documents needed for filing will also be reviewed in depth.

Those seeking to become naturalized citizens of the United States should join this class before submitting their Form N-400 application. In addition to classroom instruction, students will be given study guide materials and homework assignments.

Students are also welcome to join if they are interested in learning more about U.S. history, government, and geography, and would like to practice their English speaking and writing skills.

Our citizenship class is offered to students at the high-beginner to intermediate levels.
