About the Academy

You can choose to spend your four weeks of immersion on a beautiful college campus or abroad immersed in language and in culture.

The Academy aims to create lifelong language learners through encouraging the development of world language skills early in life. To this end, the Academy offers a rigorous four-week language immersion experience for rising 8th grade through graduated 12th graders who are passionate about language proficiency and cultural understanding. Speaking in their target language 24/7, while engaging in meaningful cultural exploration projects, students make unrivaled strides in language acquisition in four weeks.

We work with schools, foundations, and international organizations to create opportunities for young learners to attend our Academy. We encourage students to become linguistically proficient, culturally versed, and to realize their potential in their college years, professional life, and beyond.

The Academy is offered by Middlebury Interactive Languages™, which is owned by K12, Inc. Middlebury College, its Language Schools, and the Monterey Institute of International Studies have influenced the development of the curriculum and the “No English Spoken Here” immersion tradition at the core of the Academy experience.
