Online Language Studies for High School Students

I came across this recent article in the New York Times, Middlebury to Develop Online Language Venture. Middlebury College, known for its language program, is investigating the realm of online language courses. They want to specifically target high school students who are preparing for college but may not have great language programs at their schools or are homeschooled. I’m thinking it could also be good for students who are headed overseas with their parents and want to get a jump on a language before they arrive in-country. By the time our little Sharkbait is old enough to need high-school level classes, this online program should be well-established.

Yeah, college has already crossed our minds. Do we get residency in Virginia to take advantage of in-state tuition for UVA or Virginia Tech or in California for the UC system? I’m also partial to small, prestigious private schools or Ivy League schools, as long as they’re in New England. No pressure, Sharkbait.
