Our curriculum is designed to meet the specific needs of adult English language learners that live and work on the Island of Martha’s Vineyard. Since 1999 we have been helping adults attain their family, community, education, and work goals. Come and see what we are about!

what we offer

Free classes and materials, convenient evening schedules, free transportation to and from school, professionally trained teachers, and much more.

Free classes and materials

The program provides classes free of charge to registered students and provides all books, notebooks, and other study materials. Students do not pay for classes or materials.

Free transportation

Don’t Drive? No car or license? No problem! A school bus can pick you up and drop you off along a convenient route that passes through Edgartown, Oak Bluffs, and Vineyard Haven. See Bus Route here.

Convenient schedules

Classes are scheduled in the evenings and during the slower work season of September-April to accommodate Island workers.

Trained teachers

MVALP instructors are highly trained and experienced. They bring years of collective educational, cultural, language, and pedagogical experience to the program.

Student centered classes

As the student, the focus is on you. We are interested in what you have to say, what you think, and how you learn. All students actively participate in the classroom. The student does the majority of talking. The teacher is a facilitator of the learning.

Bilingual Advisor

A Portuguese-English speaking student advisor will assist you with understanding program policies and procedures. Her job is to help you overcome any barriers to the learning experience to help you meet your educational goals.
