In response to increasing demand for admission to the Middlebury Language Schools, we also offer a West Coast learning site.
Middlebury at Mills brings our established Language Schools programs to the historic Mills College campus in Oakland, California. This provides a unique opportunity for our West Coast students to experience Language Schools closer to home, and for East Coast students to explore the liveliness and cultural diversity of the Bay Area. Whether visiting Japantown or the Oasis Food Market, students can use their language skills in a real life setting.
Designed to provide the accelerated language acquisition students expect from the Language Schools, Middlebury at Mills offers instruction in Arabic, French, Japanese and Spanish. Students admitted to the Arabic School and Japanese School will study at Mills. Students in French and Spanish may choose either the Middlebury or Mills campus. If classes at a student's campus of choice are already filled, the student will be offered admission at the other campus, provided space is available. Application and financial aid processes are identical to those for the Middlebury campus.
