The aim of the English Learner Program at the Abby Kelley Foster Charter Public School is to provide linguistically and culturally diverse students with instruction that will assist them in English language development and in mastering academic subject matter content. We are committed to offering a program which will meet the needs of our English Learners both academically and as lifelong citizens of the community.
