In view of sharing its resources and expertise, the Center invites students outside of the Bennington College community to participate in courses on campus as well as providing opportunities for Bennington students to apply their learning outside of the four walls of the classroom.

  • The Community College of Vermont at Bennington (CCV). Students enrolled in CCV can avail themselves of foreign language courses at the Center. They receive CCV credit at CCV tuition but attend and participate in the Center’s programs.
  • Local High Schools. High school seniors who want to pursue their existing language studies or initiate the study of a new language can apply for enrollment in the Center’s foreign language program for the minimal cost of $100 per course.
  • ESL support for adults and children. This takes the form of conversation practice and academic help.
