English Mastery Center

Student Capstone English Mastery Center is a small, private, nonprofit school. We are dedicated to teaching English and academic business subjects to international students. We have been under our present management since 1961.

We have pioneered innovative instructional methods and school management techniques such as Individualized Mastery Learning, a multi-sensory, self-paced learning environment in which the schedule and curriculum are adjusted to the needs of each individual student, rather than the student fitting into the school's arbitrary schedule.

Most of our students are studying to pass the TOEFL or TOEIC, but many also wish to improve their English simply for business or personal reasons, or to pass GED, GRE, or GMAT tests. For information about getting an I-20 form to apply for a student visa, Click Here

There are no terms -- no quarters or semesters of any kind. Capstone is open 50 weeks per year, so students can enroll on any school day. (See our school schedule). If you are already attending another school in the U.S. on a student visa, you can easily transfer to Capstone. Download our transfer clearance form and fax or mail it to us.

We also place a special emphasis on serving our students at a cost they can afford. Our tuition is the lowest in the Portland Metropolitan area.

Looking west at downtown Portland, home to the largest urban park in the United States. Forest Park is located in the hills in the upper right. Capstone EMC is located just 9 blocks from the river from the end of the bridge on the right. The MAX light rail trains, which serve communities as far east as Gresham and as far west as Beaverton and Hillsboro go by beneath our windows and stop just a half-block away. We are just 3 blocks from the bus mall, where students can conveniently commute from Tigard, Tualatin, Lake Oswego, Oregon City, or Milwaukie to the south or from Vancouver, Washington to the north.
