English Language/Civics Classes

Due to COVID-19, our programs may be operating with different procedures than what may be outlined below. For more information, please click here to see our updated schedule.

ELCivics

Keystone offers free EL/Civics (citizenship) classes provided through Title II, Pennsylvania Department of Education funding. Our current schedule provides morning and evening classes remotely via Zoom. Classes meet twice a week for 2.0 hours per class.

In spring of 2022, in partnership with HIAS Pennsylvania, we will also be offering a ten week citizenship class with funding from the USCIS Citizenship and Integration Grant Program.

Students in EL/Civics class study English (listening, speaking, reading, and writing), U.S. history and civics, and learn interview skills needed to pass the U.S. naturalization interview and exam. It is very important to learn about the naturalization process and prepare in advance for your naturalization interview! Keystone recommends students take this class four months to one year before applying for naturalization.

Potential students should call or text our education hotline at 267-663-1001 to begin the process of admission into the class.
