We Offer A Few Types of Informational Events

Prospective Parent Information Sessions: Information Sessions introduce our school's program including philosophy, mission, curriculum and extracurricular activities. 

Open House: "Meet & Greet" our faculty, who will share their vision of the classroom. Prospective families will also meet school leadership, explore our campus, and hear from students and parents about their experience with our program.

Tours:  Register for a tour. We offer tours every week across all grade levels, from preschool to grade 11.  Please contact admissions at (703) 854-1253 to schedule an individual tour of our campus. 

Student Visitor Program: Prospective students are invited to experience a day in the life of a BASIS Independent McLean student! Your student will meet faculty and participate with their ambassador and peers in fun, engaging lessons that will give a sense of what it means to be a Red-Tailed Hawk.
