The Massasoit/Stoughton ESOL Program is a collaborative partnership between Massasoit Community College, Stoughton Public Schools, and the Town of Stoughton, funded by a grant from the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (ESE). The program addresses the need for Stoughton area adults to gain English proficiency. Based on individual student needs, our instructors tailor lessons to maximize opportunities for students to attain their life goals.

Classes are held from September to June, following the Stoughton Public Schools calendar. The 34-week long program offers Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced levels of ESOL. Topics include reading, writing, grammar, American Culture & Civics, numeracy, conversation, pronunciation, and computer labs.

Placements are chosen through a lottery system. Interested students must register to be included in the lottery that is held twice a year: August & September. Registrations are by appointment only. For an appointment email us at or call us at 774-480-4608.

All classes are offered FREE of charge to students with limited English proficiency!
Classes are held on Tuesday and Thursday Evenings from 6:00 to 9:00 pm remotely.
