Founded in 1959, the C.V. Starr-Middlebury School in Germany provides students with the opportunity to experience one of two diverse sites. By studying and living alongside their German peers, students have the unique chance to improve their German while choosing courses from the entire academic curriculum.
In Mainz, a city with a population of 280,000 located about 30 minutes from Frankfurt, students can experience the legendary 'Gemütlichkeit' of the Rhineland while enrolling in courses alongside their German peers in fields ranging from art history to physics at the Johannes Gutenberg-Universität.
In Berlin, students can enjoy a metropolitan experience in a city of 3.5 million inhabitants while taking courses at Freie Universität, one of the capital's two public universities. Enrolling in courses in any number of disciplines, students study and live in this very international, yet very German city.
Students supplement their cultural and language immersion through housing with German roommates, internships, or volunteer work.
