What We Do Who We Are Get Involved Donate to Help Support Our Learners

Change your Life

If you could change one thing about your life, what would it be?

Your job? Your family life? How you interact with your friends and neighbors?

Learning WILL change your life, and the Springs Learning Center will help.

The Springs Learning Center is a non-profit, non-denominational educational outreach ministry of the Dominican Sisters of Peace. The Center offers English as a Second Language to Adult Learners in the Greater New Haven area of Connecticut, assisting learners in building career skills and earning American citizenship.

To register for Adult Learning classes, please call the Springs Learning Center at (203) 787-1025 (O) or at (203) 780-1412 (M). We will help you schedule a time to take the placement test and register as a new learner.

Placement tests are offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
