We Offer A Few Types of Informational Events

Prospective Parent Information Sessions: Information Sessions provide an introduction to our school's program including philosophy, mission, curriculum and extracurricular activity. Hosting all Information Sessions is our Head of School and members of our Admissions team.

Open House: An exciting opportunity designed to provide a full, immersive overview of the BASIS Independent McLean program. At our Open House, a representation of our teaching staff will be available for a "Meet & Greet" and to share their vision of the classroom. Prospective families will also have the opportunity to meet school leadership, explore our facility, and hear from students and parents about their experience with our program.

Tours: We offer guided tours on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 9:30 am to 10:30 am for prospective families and applicants to see our program in action. Register for a tour.

Student Visitor Program: We invite students who have applied to BASIS Independent McLean for the 2017-18 school year to participate in our Student Visitor Program! This is a great opportunity to learn about our classroom experience, engage with our passionate teachers and get to know fellow classmates. The visitor program is open for applicants interested in kindergarten-grade 10.

If you don't see an event that works with your schedule, join our interest list to be alerted of additional opportunities.
