More About Our Mission

Our History

New America College (NAC), founded in 2007 as a non-profit 501c(3), is an English Language School for adults. We serve English language learners – from beginner to advanced. NAC offers intensive classes (18 houts per week) designed to immerse students in the English language. For many of our students, our classes are the only time they speak, read, write or hear English for an extended period of time. 95% of students complete their enrollment period with us. Long-held partnerships are in place to help our students continue to reach their personal and professional goals. In 2022, we moved to Aurora, which has embraced us as part of their community.

  • “I like the cordiality and the respect that there is among all.”
  • “Learning ESL at NAC is the best choice to create the good step for the future.”
