Academia Normington was founded in 1972 by Liverpudlian David Normington and his French wife, Maïthé Palacín. Their daughter, Lara, makes up the third member of this family-run school in Murica City.

The school offers English and French classes to students of all ages from six years of age to adults. Although most of the classes are in groups (maximum 10 students), the school also offers the possibility of one-to-one classes.

As well as teaching general English, Academia Normington prepares students for the Escuela Oficial de Idiomas exams and the Cambridge University exams (PET, First Certificate, Advanced and Proficiency).
