Middle and High School Language Immersion in the U.S.
St. Michael’s is located just off the shores of Lake Champlain and is surrounded by the peaks of the Adirondacks. The campus features a beautiful campus green, a new student center, and 440 sprawling acres. St. Michael’s is easily accessible and located two miles from the Burlington International Airport, two hours from Montreal, and just minutes to downtown Burlington. Travel & Leisure named Burlington as the top college town in America in 2016.
A Language Immersion Experience
At the Arabic Academy, students live immersed in language and culture, surrounded by like-minded peers and supportive mentors. Students and staff take the Language Pledge® together—a formal commitment to speak solely in Arabic for the duration of the program.
Language immersion is challenging, but it’s also worth it. In four weeks, students will make unrivaled strides in their language skills and come away with increased confidence, independence, and experience to set students apart in the college admissions process.
So much more than just a summer camp, the Academy is a unique residential language experience based on Middlebury College's famed Language Schools with 100 years of immersion language teaching.
The life benefits of language proficiency are extensive. #takethelanguagepledge
