Vermont World Language Initiative

Middlebury Interactive and Middlebury College have partnered in an initiative that will expand the state’s skilled workforce pipeline by providing up to 30 Vermont schools with deeply discounted, unlimited access to Middlebury Interactive’s web-based world language courses in Chinese, French, German, Latin and Spanish.

Under the Vermont World Language Initiative:

  • Any Vermont public or private secondary school is eligible for the program on a first-come, first-served basis. The program is currently capped at 30 schools statewide.
  • Middlebury Interactive will provide the courses at a significant discount to Vermont schools. This discount represents the equivalent of up to a total of $1.9 million, depending on the number of schools that participate. Schools will pay about $6,000.
  • Middlebury College will cover $3,000 for course content and $2,750 for in-person teacher professional development training for each participating school per year.
