The ongoing goal of Summer Session in the Langley School District is to provide short term educational opportunities for students to support them in their long term educational development, and to inspire them to reach their full potential. Every year, Summer Session provides an opportunity for grade 1-12 students from Langley and neighbouring regions to explore areas of interest, get extra help, and stay connected with their learning during the summer.

Update as of March 28, 2021
