In its more than 40 year history the Carlos Rosario International Public Charter School has gone from a small grassroots English as a Second Language program to a comprehensive adult education program recognized nationally and internationally as a successful model for transforming immigrant individuals, families, and communities. Working closely with the community, the Carlos Rosario School prepares the diverse adult immigrant populations of Washington, D.C. to become invested, productive citizens and members of American society who give back to family and community. Over its more than 40 year history, this culturally vibrant center for learning has served more than 60,000 students.
A highly qualified, diverse, and dedicated team of faculty and staff offer award-winning adult education programs including English as a Second Language, GED, ESL for Families, Citizenship, Technology Essentials and workforce development as well as comprehensive support services to more than 3,000 students annually. Our students represent more than 72 countries and speak over 37 different languages.
Thanks to the School's programs thousands of adults have obtained high school diplomas; passed the citizenship exam and become U.S. citizens; gained the English skills necessary to help their children with homework; entered into careers and climbed career ladders; paid millions of dollars' worth of taxes; purchased homes; and obtained college degrees and workforce certifications.
