Who is the typical Lang School student?
Intellectual or creative engagement is key to student success at Lang. Often, our students are not inspired to challenge themselves in more traditional school settings. Before they arrive at our doors, these high potential learners might say school is boring; their teachers might label them "lazy" or underachievers; or these students might refuse to go to school altogether. The typical Lang School student is able to capitalize on our individualized interventions and supports, classrooms of affinity and ability peers, and radically differentiated group instruction.
Who is the typical Lang School parent?
The typical Lang School parent is collaboratorative and prepared to support their child in a wide variety of ways with the recognition that school is not a solution to every challenge. Some of our students need targeted outside supports in order to reinforce the school's work and to generalize emerging skills across settings. Our parents are eager to engage with the school in a team-oriented process of identifying and meeting their child's needs holistically. We offer parent workshops throughout the school year, and our Parent Association is an active support network for the school and, most of all, for the parent community itself.
The following requirements must be met in order to submit an application:
Verbal Comprehension or Perceptual Reasoning indices should generally be at least in the superior range, though subtest scores may show discrepancies between “gifts” and relative deficits.
Students that need additional supports (2e) require a neuropsychological or psychoeducational evaluation no older than two years.
The Lang School is not appropriate for children who are physically or verbally aggressive.
Tuition Tiers and Fees
Families must demonstrate an ability to pay tuition and fees. Our parents successfully seek reimbursement of tuition from the Department of Education.
The Lang School accepts Connors Case payments on behalf of families of limited economic means, and may provide extended payment plans. Both Connors Cases and extended payment plans require a demonstration of need, proof of which includes the provision of both a financial statement and credit check.
Please contact admissions for more information about completing a secure online financial statement and credit check.
We are accepting applications for grades K through 12 for school years 2016 / 17 b > and 2017/18.
