US Electives

Elective courses meet every other day throughout each quarter. Students in every grade complete one quarter of metacognition and one quarter of health and wellness each year. In addition, ninth and tenth grade students participate in two quarters of physical education each year, and eleventh grade students participate in one quarter of community service. During a student’s upper school experience, he/she participates in four additional quarters of physical education, visual art, and performing art. Visual art electives may include art foundation, painting, drawing, art portfolio, film criticism, film production, yearbook, and web design. Performance arts electives may include vocal/instrumental music, theatre, public speaking, primitive tool making, and soap box derby. Depending upon faculty availability, other visual and performing art electives may be available to upper school students.

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.
