The academies, held at Greenwich Academy and three other locations nationally, are designed to work closely with the language department of the participating partner schools.

"Middlebury's reputation as a leader in the field of second language education is unparalleled," Greenwich Academy World Languages Department Chairman Jill Riverain said. "We are thrilled to be facilitating access to language camps for the early language learners in the Fairchester community. As an alumna (and an alum parent as well) of language training at Middlebury, I am especially pleased that this opportunity for cultural immersion in both Spanish and French will be available on the GA campus this summer."

The two-week sessions run full days from June 11-22 or June 25-July 6. The sequential curriculum allows students to enroll in a second session if continued learning is desired. To enroll in the academies or to learn more, visit http://mmla.middlebury.edu/summerday/.
