School Introduction

The American Culture and English Studies (ACES) Program at Felician College offers comprehensive intensive English with year round instruction and cultural immersion. The program is designed to prepare students to enroll in a degree program, enter a competitive job market or simply improve their listening, speaking, reading and writing skills. In addition to classroom learning, a college campus provides a total immersion experience; ESL students can interact with American students, live in residence halls, participate in campus activities and explore New York City, which is only a 30 minute bus ride away.

ESL Program Introduction

Students in the ACES intensive English program study reading, writing, listening/discussion and grammar for 23 hours a week. We offer five levels of instruction from high beginner to college preparation with a focus on academic skills. In addition, students take elective classes which are either skills or culture based. Elective classes may include vocabulary workshop, pronunciation, US culture through film, or New York City. In addition, students in our upper levels can audit college level classes for an additional fee. Those students who complete all five levels of the ACES program are eligible for the ACES Alumni scholarship. Qualifying students may receive a minimum of $5, 000 to put towards Felician College tuition for any of our undergraduate programs.

Felician also offers short term programs in the summer and winter. College students on winter or summer break can attend a four week program which includes English classes and activities. In the summer, high school students enjoy two weeks of English and culture camp with morning classes and trips around New Jersey and New York City in the afternoon.
