  2. Executing with excellence in everything we do
  3. Expanding our community reach and impact
  4. Establishing sustainable practices

Our K-5 programming is focused on providing students with a firm foundation in Biblical narrative, literacy and numeracy, and core competencies such as thinking and social-emotional regulation skills.

Our 8-12 programming continues our focus on firm Biblical thinking and core competencies, supported by engaging and relevant electives in STEM, skilled trades, innovation & technology, creative arts, community service and personal wellness. We offer a range of quality extra-curricular opportunities in athletics, service and the arts.

The Community

Langley is a rapidly growing, ethnically and culturally diverse community with outstanding amenities and opportunities. Langley Christian enjoys a strong, collaborative relationship with community partners, neighbouring schools, as well as other independent schools throughout British Columbia.

At the same time, there are also many theatres, restaurants, and shopping malls to enjoy in the region.
