What do you call the first 10 amendments to the Constitution?  What is the “rule of law”? Who is the Commander-in-Chief of the military? 
These are just a sample of the 100 civics questions that refugees and immigrants pursuing U.S. citizenship might be asked during their naturalization test.
Catholic Charities offers a free Citizenship Preparation Program that helps students not only answer the questions, but provides application assistance and one-on-one interview preparation.
In March, the program finished its fifth quarter of classes, celebrating with a much deserved class party. Fifteen students moved from the first level to the second level of classes; 11 students completed the program and are ready to submit applications for citizenship; three graduates passed their naturalization interview; and t hree graduates took their Oath of Allegiance and became U.S. citizens!
Since the programs start, a total of 23 graduates have become U.S. citizens; 5 more have already passed the test and are just waiting on their oath ceremonies.
Due to class sizes, volunteer tutors are always a welcome addition to the classroom. Tutors work with small groups of adults helping them learn relevant content in a fun, engaging atmosphere.  Classes are offered in the morning, afternoon and evening.
