Framingham Adult English as a Second Language PLUS (FAESL Plus) was established in 1984 by a group of concerned citizens in the community using private donations. The program has grown from 30 students to more than 750 students each semester, in the morning and evening components. The majority of funding is from State and Federal grants. However, the program is still dependent on community and private donations, as well as fund raising to maintain services. The FAESL+ program operates as a department of Framingham Public Schools, which provides space and support for our classes.

Framingham Adult English as a Second Language PLUS has 
provided free English language instruction and life skills training to 
more than 6,000 immigrants in the Framingham area.  The program 
has helped hundreds of students work towards their GED.  We have 
been a passageway to a better life for people from over 38 countries 
and a wide variety of backgrounds.

Our philosophy is to provide each student with the language skills necessary to achieve personal success at home, at work, and in the community.
