Applying to McLean

Thank you for your interest in McLean’s life-changing approach to learning! We believe in our college preparatory model, which emphasizes small classes, differentiated instruction, and, most importantly, “can” rather than “cannot.” Simply put a better way of doing school. Are you ready for a transformational education? At McLean, we’re ready to hear from you.

Each application is assessed on an individual basis to ensure that McLean is able to meet the needs of our students. While McLean provides embedded academic support in the classroom, we are most successful with bright students whose primary challenge is not behavioral, social, or emotional. If you have any questions about whether McLean is the right fit for your child, please contact us at admission@mcleanschool.org or call 240.395.0698.

    To better understand your child, there are a number of required supporting documents that we need you and your child’s current school to provide.

    Schedule Student Visit & Parent Interview

    Once an application is completed, and you’ve provided the required documents, you can self-schedule your parent interview and student visit from your account. The one-hour parent interview is a conversation with a member of the Admission team that looks at the student’s academic growth and development, as well as addressing any parent questions. The student visit is an opportunity for an applicant to experience a day in the life of a McLean Mustang.
