Welcome to Summer Studio From Langley’s Head of School New This Year... Check out some of our exciting new offerings for 2018:

NEW!

Design+Engineering classes add the design process to building, with campers making and programming droids

NEW!

Dissection Obsession lets kids get up close and personal with the anatomy of organisms

NEW!

Visual+Performing Arts classes cater to the Broadway-bound who love to sing, dance, and perform

This past year, The Langley School enjoyed a year-long birthday party as we celebrated the school’s 75th anniversary. Langley started as a cooperative school in 1942, with parents at the heart of everything we did from mulching the flower beds and painting to handling plumbing and building playgrounds. As part of these cooperative roots, our summer program – then called Summer Growth – was introduced in 1975. I’m thrilled to see how our summer program has grown and evolved over the decades, while staying true to our belief in the necessity and power of a strong partnership with parents. I hope you enjoy the many new classes we’ve added to our offerings in 2018. Each year, we seek input from students, parents, and educators on how to continue to offer fun, relevant, and stimulating classes that appeal to the many interests and passions of our campers. I look forward to seeing how you “mix+match” classes to build your child’s perfect summer! -Dr. Elinor Scully, Head of The Langley School

NEW!

Math+Language Arts offerings incorporate academic concepts with fun adventures

NEW!

Sports+Games classes reflect the latest student interests, including popular TV game shows

NEW!

Technology+Robotics offerings include the latest app design, ROBLOX®, and virtual reality experiences

Summer Studio Policies To view a complete listing of policies and procedures and to download forms, visit www.langleyschool.org/summer-studio.

DEPOSIT & PAYMENT

WAITLIST

To reserve your child’s spot, a non-refundable, non-transferable deposit of $150 per week, per child is due at the time of registration and is deducted from the total amount due. Full payment is due on or before May 1, 2018. If final payment is not received by May 1, the space will be forfeited. After May 1, payment is due in full at the time of registration. A fee of $25 will be charged for any returned checks.

Due to the extreme popularity of many of our classes, waitlists do occur. To place your child on the waitlist, you must register online for the specific class’ waitlist. There is no fee for being on a waiting list, nor is any credit card information required. We cannot take waitlist registrations or hold spots over the phone. As spaces become available, they are filled in the order in which they were registered online.

The Langley School Summer Studio program reserves the right to charge the credit card on file for outstanding balances. Upon completion of your registration, you will receive an e-mail confirmation along with a copy of your statement.

Should a space become available for a waitlisted class, you will be notified via e-mail and/ or telephone to confirm interest in the available spot. If you decide to enroll your child in the available spot, you will need to complete your registration by paying the deposit and/or full payment online (please see our class changes, cancellations, and withdrawals policy). There is no penalty should you choose not to enroll; we will simply notify the next family on the waitlist.

CLASS CHANGES, CANCELLATIONS, & WITHDRAWALS

REQUIRED FORMS

Space permitting, class changes may be made before registration closes for a camp week. A $25 fee will apply to each change in a camper’s schedule, plus the difference in cost between the classes. Parents/guardians must inform the Summer Studio Office in writing if they are withdrawing their child from any class. If a cancellation is made at any time before May 1, 2018, all payments, minus the non-refundable deposit, will be refunded. No refunds will be granted for withdrawals after May 1, 2018. Deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable between classes, siblings, and other programs offered by The Langley School. If a class is under-enrolled, Summer Studio reserves the right to cancel the class and a full refund will be granted. Advance notice will be provided in these situations two weeks prior to the start of class, and the Summer Studio team will help families find alternative class options. In cases where the cost of the new class is greater than the class being replaced, the price difference will be charged to the camper. All changes are based on availability and grade requirements. There are no refunds for absences and there is no provision for make-up classes. No refund will be granted in the event of dismissal for inappropriate or unsafe conduct.
