The Academy at BASIS Independent McLean is a seminar-style, writing-intensive humanities program built around core readings. Students take humanities courses specific to The Academy while continuing to take other BASIS Curriculum courses with their BASIS Independent McLean peers. The Academy prepares students deeply for college-level analysis, writing, and discourse. Students who are exceptionally dedicated to growth in the humanities will embrace the opportunities for the deep engagement with texts afforded in these courses.

The program serves grades 8 through 12, starting with grades 8 through 10 in the fall of 2019.
