    About Spanish-American Institute

    The Spanish-American Institute was founded in 1955. The school’s mission responds to the needs of its changing student population. The Institute originally provided communicative adult basic English language training to newly arrived immigrants primarily from the Spanish-speaking Americas. The Institute responded to their additional need for job-entry office skills by adding career-training courses such as stenography, typing, and bookkeeping. While the school now draws its student body from all over the world, it continues to provide English language preparation both as an end in itself and as an integral component of workplace skills training. 1.2. State the institution's mission and cite where it is found in the catalog. As found on page 7 of the Catalog, the Institute mission statement reads as follows: The Spanish-American Institute's mission is to provide effective skills training to individuals seeking entry-level office employment. Philosophy – The population served by the Institute is largely foreign-born and faces a double challenge to acquire: · entry level office skills in keyboarding, accounting, computer operations and · improved English language ability. The Institute believes that students who can anticipate progress on both fronts from the start of classes are more likely to begin and to successfully complete training. Courses and programs at the Spanish-American Institute permit an individual to pursue these two goals simultaneously. Objectives – The Institute implements this philosophy through: the establishment and maintenance of an effective faculty the development of business, computer, and language courses and programs the integration of a varied English as a Second Language course sequence.
