New Students and students who have not taken classes with LVCA in the past year: 

Before the class starts, you will need to have a one-hour meeting to fill out our registration forms and take an English test. You can come to our office for the meeting, or we can meet on Zoom. After you register for the class, we will contact you to schedule your meeting.  

If you do not have the textbook, we ask you to donate $20 toward the cost of the book if you are able. You can mail us the textbook donation or use this link to pay online.
