English as a Second Language
The New Kent English as a Second Language program is in place to provide additional English instruction and support services to ensure the success of English Language Learners.  An English Language Learner is a student whose home language is not English, needs additional supports to learn English, and/or academically requires modified work to accommodate for learning English in order to meet state objectives along with English language standards.

The ESL Program provides the necessary modified instruction and tutoring to ensure English Language Learners are able to be successful in the classroom.   Along with direct services to students, the ESL staff works with teachers to develop instructional strategies that will support student acquisition of the English language across all content areas.
