The Intensive English Program (IEP) is an international community of English language learners located on the Indian Valley Campus in Novato. Classes are small and the pace is accelerated.
The IEP offers high quality classes in academic English for F-1 international students, J-1s (au pairs), professionals, and residents. It prepares students to enter American colleges and universities and helps them to improve their English skills for other purposes such as business, TOEFL, or general communication.
