Equipping all students to confidently fulfill their passion and purpose
At Langley, we carefully tend to your child’s emotional acuity—not just to supplement academic achievement, but to ensure it. At every grade level, Langley’s teachers employ their expertise in child development to judiciously guide and challenge their students to reach the next level. We intentionally plan the curriculum as a rigorous, developmentally attuned progression from each grade and division to the next. Our inquiry-based program reflects the latest research on how to engage students most effectively—inspiring them to ask meaningful, necessary questions and harness their learning to explore creative answers.
Our curriculum also integrates significant leadership opportunities from day one. Your child starts public speaking in preschool during assemblies and morning meetings, and presents research to the class in kindergarten. By third grade your child is performing in the Colonial play, and by fifth is leading assemblies. In seventh grade, your child researches and argues a position on energy policy before a mock Congressional panel. The whole school looks up to our eighth-graders, and they shoulder the responsibility eagerly, fully prepared to lead the school in the ways this high-profile position requires.
By creating a deeply supportive, invigorating learning environment, our entire community encourages our students to take sensible yet meaningful risks, empowering them to grow from both success and failure. And by incorporating state-of-the-art learning tools into every subject—from engaging geometry apps in Primary School to our Middle School’s teacher-designed, discovery-focused science labs which students begin using in first grade—we ensure they know how to employ technology thoughtfully, nimbly, and effectively.
Langley students grow into self-directed, confident, joyful learners who see themselves not just as students, but as scientists, mathematicians, artists, historians, inventors, and even world-changers. By the end of eighth grade, they are more than ready to take on the rigors of the nation’s top high schools—and looking forward to college.
To us, childhood and early adolescence are periods of steep, complex, joyful learning.
We’re proud and honored to introduce you to our passionate leadership team.
No matter what their profession, Langley alumni of all ages are using the foundational skills they learned here to make a difference.
