Board of Supervisors OKs $21M to Renovate McLean Private School

The Langley School, a private school in McLean, wants a multi-million-dollar makeover.

Today (Tuesday), the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors approved issuing $21 million in revenue bonds by the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority to the school for a renovation.

“The bonds will be entirely supported by the revenues of The Langley School,” according to county documents.

County documents said that the funding will help cover the costs of renovating, equipping and acquiring a three-story academic building that would serve as the school’s “hub,” along with:

  • flexible learning spaces
  • primary school facilities
  • fifth-grade space
  • library
  • music facilities
  • renovating existing campus primary school facilities

“In addition, the applicant requested the ability to pursue refinancing or refunding certain prior debt, funding reserves, capitalized interest and/or swap breakage costs related to the proposed bonds or the prior bonds and funding certain costs of the issuance of the proposed bonds,” the documents said.

The school (1411 Balls Hill Road) teaches kids from preschool to eighth grade.
