At BASIS Independent McLean, our content-rich curriculum is complemented by plenty of opportunities for students to see ideas in action—both in and out of the classroom. We delight in giving students the opportunity to deepen their understanding of material and how it relates to the world around them, to tap into their five senses and explore problems from new angles.

Hands-on work and projects are present in all grades and subjects, especially through our primary Connections program and Senior Projects, but we seek out learning opportunities that take our students outside of the four walls of their classrooms and into the real world.
