Designed specifically for rising 5th to 8th grade students, the Middle School Academy is engineered for beginning students, as well as students who have already completed language courses at grade level.
A student is placed into an appropriate instructional learning group, based upon their level of language ability. The middle school sequential curriculum allows students to enroll in a second session, if continued learning is desired during the 2012 summer. The Academy focuses on the following major learning outcomes:
- Expose students to the target language and culture.
- Foster a passion and interest for continued language learning.
- Increase fluency and self-confidence in language.
Each of these outcomes is embedded in the MIL Summer Day Academy curriculum and instruction which challenges each student to “live and learn language” by applying and using the language in classroom based instruction, cultural projects, and hands-on activities.
The High School Academy is designed for rising 9th to 12th grade students and focuses on increasing language proficiency through rigorous and concentrated study by following MIL’s online curriculum.
The program is designed to assist students who are seeking higher levels of placement in their respective High School program.
During the two weeks, students are familiarized with the content and structure of MIL online courses. Upon leaving the Academy, students continue their learning at home independently with an assigned MIL Online Teacher and complete the remaining content in one semester of the appropriate MIL online course. The French and Spanish program is open to true beginners and students who have completed up to two years of high school language instruction. The Chinese program is open to true beginners and students who have completed up to one year of high school language instruction.
Note: This program does not offer AP prep. Students who have successfully completed three years of High School language instruction and are ready to take AP language classes in the fall are recommended to enroll at the Middlebury-Monterey Language Academy in the level IV course specially designed for students who fit this profile.
