Langley Schools of Choice

Langley School District offers a rich diversity of programs that are designed to meet the specific needs and interests of students. Programs of Choice fall into three main categories: District Programs, School-based Programs, and programs offered through the Career Education Department. Students and parents interested in additional choice options should ask at the office of their neighbourhood school. Many individual courses that may be of interest are not listed here.

District Programs

When a student enrols in a District Program all or certainly most of their courses and instruction is delivered within the context of the program. District Programs must deliver the BC School Curriculum, but they usually adapt the way that curriculum is delivered to suit the emphasis of the program. District Programs of Choice accept applications for registration from anywhere in the district, and do not give preference to neighbourhood students. District Programs in Langley include: Fine Arts programs, Fundamental programs, French Immersion programs, the Langley Montessori Program and U-Connect Distance Learning.

School-based Programs

School-based Choice Programs are programs that have been developed at neighbourhood schools, but which are open to students throughout the district if space is available. Students in School-based Programs take specialized courses while they continue in the neighbourhood program. Applications for registration in School-based Programs are maintained at the school where the program is offered.

How to Apply to a Langley School of Choice

The application will be online and parents will apply by entering their details, their child’s details, choose their preferred top program/choice schools & submit their application.

Placement into choice programs will be prioritized in the following manner:

  1. Langley residents with siblings in the same program
  2. Langley residents
  3. Non-Langley residents with siblings in the same program
  4. Non-Langley residents

If the number of applicants exceeds the number of available seats, the District will use a random draw process to assign either a seat or a waitlist number.   If a seat becomes available and your child is the highest on the waitlist, you will be contacted with an option to accept or reject that seat.  Families will have 7 days to respond electronically to an offer.
