Shaping self-confident, self-aware, effective learners and citizens
At Langley, leading doesn’t always mean standing out in front. But it does mean possessing the earned confidence, intellectual prowess, and mature judgment to make and carry out wise decisions — on your own behalf as well as others’. That’s why our preschool through eighth grade model gradually and purposefully equips your child with meaningful and lasting leadership skills.
Your child begins public-speaking lessons starting in preschool, performs in the much-anticipated Native American play in second grade, and leads assemblies in fifth grade. Our buddies programs — pairing eighth-graders with kindergartners and fifth-graders with first-graders — provide younger students with inspiring role models and give older students significant mentoring responsibilities.
Student Council and Student Ambassador programs give students the chance to run for and serve in leadership roles and carry out defined responsibilities on behalf of the school and student body. Through extensive service learning opportunities at every grade level, your child learns to motivate and cooperate with others to benefit the larger community. And unlike a preschool through grade 12 program, Langley places eighth-graders at the top of the school, so your child becomes a role model for all younger students at age 12.
Observing, practicing, and reflecting on leadership, your student not only learns how to take charge judiciously and effectively, but comes to understand what true leading really requires.
