Language Arts

At Centreville Layton School, we recognize the importance of reading, and a high-quality, research-based program is the cornerstone of our school’s instruction and curriculum.  Each student receives targeted reading assessments that are used to create individual reading profiles. These profiles provide our team of specialists and teachers with the data needed to provide individualized instruction for each student.

Our multisensory reading program is based on skill development, utilizing authentic literature with the goal of creating confident and lifelong readers. Centreville Layton students receive a dynamic and well-rounded literacy experience. Our writing program, Lucy Calkins’ Writers’ Workshop, provides students with tools and strategies to become descriptive and proficient writers and communicators.

Centreville Layton School’s child-centered reading and writing philosophy, our small class size, and the intervention of specialists inside and outside of the classroom work in tandem to create an environment where even the most reluctant readers and writers thrive.

The difference is clear

Our son learned the valuable skills of teamwork, patience and perseverance during his time at Centreville Layton as well as the academic strategies to move forward into a typical high school setting. Centreville Layton strikes a great balance of family-like warmth and discipline in a beautiful country setting.

This past year has been completely transformational for our daughter and her positive strides have been noticeable both at home and at school. She is growing into the best version of herself and her teachers at CLS have played a significant role in her progress.

This year, I’ve learned to understand that acceptance is greatly appreciated but difficult to find. Compared to where I came from, CLS houses some of the most accepting people that I’ve ever met. I am thankful for every little act of kindness shown towards me or even towards another student. They have not gone unnoticed.


We’re prepared for this because we’ve learned how to work hard, solve problems, be independent, happy, responsible and kind to all.


The support from my teachers taught me not just reading and writing, but to embrace who I am, to learn from my mistakes and grow because of them.
