Citizenship Classes

This 3-month class prepares people to take the American Citizenship exam by teaching:

  • US history

  • US civics & government

  • How to answer questions verbally

  • How to take the exam successfully

Intermediate English reading and writing skills are required before attending this class because they are required for the exam. This class does not teach English.


Registration nights are held at the start of Fall and Spring Sessions at the same time as our English as a Second Language (ESL) registration. During registration students who are interested in Citizenship classes will be tested to see whether English reading and writing skills meet the requirements of Citizenship class. Anyone wishing to be a student must register in person and be tested before joining a class. 

Registration for class is free of cost, but the cost of the book used during class is $25.

Our next open registration:

  • Monday September 9 at 7:00pm or

  • Wednesday September 11 at 7:00pm

Look for English as a Second Language (ESL) signs.

Please note that we are not able to provide childcare and children are not allowed in the classroom.


Classes meet Mondays and Wednesdays from 7:00pm to 8:30pm at 801 West Bardin Rd, Arlington, TX  76017. A complete citizenship course lasts for one semester so you would only attend either Fall or Spring, not both. 

  • Fall Classes: Middle of September through the beginning of December

  • Spring Classes: End of January through the middle of May

  • No classes during June, July and August
