How quickly could you learn if you had a teacher nearby and ready to help you—all day, every day?
The Italian School offers a teacher-to-student ratio that is one of the lowest in academia, presenting you with a unique opportunity to acquire and expand your skills under the constant guidance of some of the world’s most experienced and dedicated instructors.
Daily contact with your teachers extends beyond the classroom to include drop-in office hours, discussion groups, and lectures. Between times, you'll join them in organized cocurricular activities—including Italian dance, games, cooking, and bocce—each designed to help you build new vocabulary while developing cultural fluency.
Summer after summer, the Italian School continues to deliver on its reputation for combining rigorous expectations with unmatched support. That’s why many of our students—from researchers and scholars to teachers and travelers—return to the School again and again.
All students who enroll in the Italian School for the summer 2014 session will study at our West Coast site at Mills College, in Oakland, California. Application and financial aid processes are identical to those for the Middlebury campus. For more information on Middlebury at Mills, please click here.
