This study aimed to assess the current English Proficiency Program of the foreign students enrolled in the Claro M. Recto Academy for Advanced Studies at LPU Manila during academic year 2021-2022. A Mixed Method research design was used in this study specifically an Explanatory Sequential, that explores both quantitative and qualitative data. The researchers collected and analyzed the TOEIC (Test of English for International Communication) results of the 179 foreign graduate students about their English proficiency, both in listening and reading skills and then collected online survey to explain and elaborate the significant experiences of the 25 students in taking-up English Proficiency program. It was revealed that most of the participants are classified in the Basic Working English Proficiency level which indicates further improvement in the language facility that will help them in the workplace and academic communication. These findings indicated that the respondents perceived the English Enhancement Program has a positive and huge impact on their language acquisition in English. This implied that the existing program has an effective way to develop and improve the proficiency level of the English language. However, it was revealed in the findings that most of the respondents are still recommending the existing program to revisit and improve methods and teaching strategies that can cater to the demands of the language learners.
