About Discovery

Discovery Learning Center (DLC) was established in 2004 by a team of experienced educators and administrators.

From the beginning, it was clear that a large number of students needed to improve both their spoken and written, English-language skills. To meet this need, DLC made the transition away from being a preparatory school to become an institute for the teaching and learning of English as a Second Language.

DLC is now located in a spacious, and well-lit facility in Fort Lee, New Jersey, offering a comprehensive program of communicative, English-language courses at beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels to serve the needs of English language learners.



Discovery Learning Center is accredited by the Commission on English Language Program Accreditation (CEA) for the period April 2022 through April 2032 and agrees to uphold the CEA Standards for English Language Programs and Institutions.  CEA is recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education as a nationally recognized accrediting agency for English language programs and institutions in the U.S.  For further information about this accreditation, please contact CEA, 1001 N. Fairfax Street, Suite 630, Alexandria, VA 22314, (703) 665-3400, www.cea-accredit.org.
