The CNYRIC offers American Sign Language classes for high school students via videoconferencing. These courses can be taken  as an elective, a series of three sequential courses for the Languages Other Than English(LOTE) credit for the New York State Regents requirement, or for dual credit with college credits from SUNY Oswego.

All of the participating students are invited to an ASL Rally in the spring of each year at the CNYRIC. This is a fantastic opportunity for the ASL students to meet with Deaf and Hard of Hearing students to apply what they have learned throughout the year within their ASL courses. The ASL Rally is a day filled with voice-off activities, presentations, breakout activites, student presentations and making friends between cultures.


"American Sign Language is a highly entertaining class that opens doors of language; enabling communication to those who otherwise would not be able to. ASL is an interactive class in which something new happens every day- from vocabulary games like BINGO to presentations with classifiers."
- Emily, ASL II Student at Tully CSD

"American Sign Language has impacted my life so much, I grew up Deaf, not learning any sign language.  I have always wanted to learn sign language because it was part of a hidden culture of mine.  Starting in fifth grade I had contributed in a variety of Deaf and hard of hearing camps and always had to have my best friend McKayla interpret for me because I was clueless.  Once I began ninth grade I signed up for ASL 1 and had began learning much more than just the abc's.  It was a life changer because I could finally communicate with the other world my life had been incorporated in.  Not only does it just help communicate, but being such an expressive person, ASL has helped me express my feelings with body motions and facial expressions.  As a Deaf person growing up in a hearing world, ASL did much more than help me learn another language, it gained the other half of my life back.  Being able to communicate with such a diverse culture is something I would encourage every person in the entire world to contribute in."
- Aubrey, ASL III Student at Hammondsport CSD
