Due to COVID-19, our programs are operating remotely and with different procedures than what may be outlined below. For more information, please click here to see our updated schedule.
Keystone offers two free EL/Civics classes provided through a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Education. The program has EL/Civics classes, morning and evening, in three semesters: fall, winter, and spring. Keystone also offers EL/Civics in the summer. Students attend class twice a week with 2.5 hours of instruction per class.
Students in EL/Civics class study English, U.S. history and civics, and interview skills needed to pass the U.S. naturalization interview and exam. The Naturalization process takes about four to six months from start to finish, so it is essential to be prepared! Keystone recommends students take this course four months to one year before applying for naturalization.
Students interested in EL/Civics class should contact Susan Clauser, Adult Education Director, at the Keystone Opportunity Center’s office. For more information on naturalization eligibility, forms, fees, and study materials, visit the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services at http://www.uscis.gov/.
