Congratulations to all of the world students who will attend a foreign language academy this summer.

The World Language Department is thrilled to announce that all students who applied to the Governor’s Foreign Language Academies were either accepted or wait-listed.  This is a highly competitive and very special opportunity. Students will spend three weeks immersed in the language of their academy and its associated cultures along with other students from around Virginia.

Congratulations to those who have been accepted: John Maloy (German), Elena McCloy (French), Ketki Morabkar (French), and Britney Price (Latin).  Good luck to those placed on the wait list: Nikolas Churchill (Latin), and Bryan Davies (Spanish).

Two Midlothian teachers also will participate in the summer academies.  Madame Mazzola will once again serve as the director of the French academy.  Herr Tibbett, who attended the Governor’s German Academy as a high school student, will return this year as one of its teachers.
