The comprehensive IEP provides 18+ hours per week in small, supportive classroom settings. Classes focus on listening, speaking, reading, and writing.

A computer lab is available for students to practice additional skills. All students will be tested upon arrival and placed in appropriate classes. Students in the IEP should follow all admission requirements for admission to Centralia College, except that NO TOEFL SCORE is required.
