Academy Eligibility Guidelines

Students who are current 7-12 graders and will be aged 13-18 during the program are eligible to attend any of the summer residential language Academies in the United States. 

Students who are currently in grades 9-12 and will be aged 15-18 during the program are eligible to attend any of the summer residential language Academies outside the United States. 

All students must complete a full application, including an essay outlining motivations for attending the Academy prior to being considered for acceptance to the Academy.

Students of all language abilities are welcome to apply to our Academies in the United States.  To attend a program outside of the United States, students must have completed at least one year of high school level language study prior to the start of the Academy. 

Students who will be 18 years old during the Academy session, please noteThe Academy serves a wide age range of students, and except for a slightly later evening curfew and independent afternoon “town privileges” reserved for older students, all students follow the same schedule and participate in the same programming, regardless of age.

All students are expected to adhere to the same student code of conduct expectations, even those who are legally “of age.” Additionally, in compliance with federal laws, eighteen year old students will be required to sign a Release of Information document granting MMLA staff permission to speak with the student’s parent or legal guardian regarding academic, health, discipline or other concerns. Eighteen-year-old students who are extraordinarily independent and mature are eligible for, and may be better served, by attending the Middlebury College Summer Language School.
