Tuition and Financial Aid
Affording a Langley Education
Building a strong foundation in young children that lasts a lifetime is our mission, and we believe the impact multiplies over time. The benefits of learning to read, write, and think critically grows in perpetuity when done right. Learning to be a good friend, regulate emotions, and respect differences at a young age is the essential path to creating leaders who will set the example for others.
We understand that a Langley education is both a financial investment and a sacrifice. But we believe that, when made early, this investment grows in impact over time.
At Langley, we value a diverse community, welcoming students from all backgrounds, because we know this environment reflects the heterogeneous world our students are growing up in, and greatly enriches and deepens learning.
We know learning does not stop in the classroom, so tuition covers the whole Langley experience from field trips to technology and musical instruments to school events.
To ensure that a Langley education is accessible to qualified students, Langley awards nearly $1.9 million in tuition assistance dollars annually, with an average award of 73% off tuition. Bus, extended day, and lunch costs are all discounted at the same percentage as the tuition award.
The financial aid deadline for the 2019-2020 school year is February 1, 2020, for new students and January 10, 2020, for returning students. Please contact the Admissions Office with questions.

The Langley School offers several options to pay tuition:
- Annually: Full tuition paid by early June for the upcoming year
- Semi-Annually: Tuition paid in two installments in June and January
- Monthly: Tuition paid in monthly installments beginning in June and continuing through February
A 10% non-refundable deposit is required of all students at the time of enrollment, regardless of the chosen payment plan.
Yes. We recognize that applicants may have differing levels of ability to afford the school’s tuition, and we granted more than $1.8 million in financial aid to families in need of assistance last year. We strongly believe that applicants should be admitted based on their ability to thrive within our academic environment, not their ability to afford the cost of a Langley education.
Tuition Aid Data Services (TADS) processes all financial aid applications, evaluating each family’s individual financial situation. Langley’s Financial Aid Committee then reviews TADS reports, the family’s IRS 1040 tax return and attachments (including W-2s), and any other information that may affect need. A family’s financial circumstances are not included in the criteria upon which individual students are evaluated for admission; admission decisions are made independently of financial aid decisions.
Yes. Because a family's financial circumstances are subject to change, we require reapplication for financial aid every year. However, if your family situation remains relatively the same you can expect relatively the same percentage of assistance, understanding that tuition and fees are likely to increase each year.
The Langley School is comprised of students, teachers, parents, and staff who believe that a diverse community promotes learning and growth, preparing students for responsible and compassionate citizenship in the global community. We administer all programs and policies without discrimination based on race, ethnicity, religion, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, or any other category to the extent protected by applicable laws.
