Educating for the 21st Century

Educating our students to ‘thrive in a complex world’ is key to our mission. The Middlebury Vermont World Language Initiative provides our students the option of studying Chinese, French, German, Latin, or Spanish through an interactive online program; the program offers contact with a teacher in the online classroom and provides daily and weekly reports on student progress.

Preparing students to function in a language other than English is essential for 21st Century learning.  The added benefit of working with technology enhances the student’s opportunities to engage with the world beyond the classroom.
