Visit McLean

You’ve had a front-row seat into your child’s interactions with teachers and classmates and their educational experience. Is school a place where your child merely survives? If your child is not thriving in school, we invite you to experience the transformative approach at McLean School. Connect with us to learn more about what makes McLean a place where bright college-bound students, including those with dyslexia, ADHD, anxiety, and organizational challenges can learn, grow, and thrive. It’s critically important for a child to be in a school that respects them for who they are, and supports their academic strengths and challenges. This has always been true for McLean. We’re looking forward to meeting you and moving forward together.

We prioritize the health and safety of all members of our community. In light of the increased transmissibility of COVID-19, we have adopted several new policies. All visitors (regardless of age) must show proof of either COVID-19 vaccination OR a negative COVID-19 test (either antigen or PCR) administered within 72 hours prior to the visit. All visitors to campus will also receive an antigen test upon arrival. More information regarding this will be provided once you register to visit campus. We look forward to welcoming you to our campus. Thank you for your assistance in keeping our community safe.

Small Group Campus Tours

The Admission Office regularly hosts small group tours by Division. You will meet with a member of the Admission Team who will provide an overview of our transformative educational experience, take you on a tour, and answer any questions. Small group tours last one and a half hours and will be held on select days during the 2021-2022 school year:

  • Lower School (K-4): most Tuesdays, 10:00-11:30 am
  • Middle School (grades 5-8): most Wednesdays, 10:00-11:30 am
  • Upper School (grades 9-12): most Thursdays, 10:00-11:30 am

We also provide individual tours on Fridays at 10:00 am. Please call the Admission Office at 240.395.0698 or email admission@mcleanschool.org to schedule your family’s tour.

Kindergarten Discovery Day

During this event, you’ll discover how McLean tailors education for our youngest Mustangs–focusing on “can” rather than “cannot.” During our Discovery Day, children will experience a fun indoor and outdoor activity with our Director of Athletics, while parents get an in-depth look at the Kindergarten program with our Head of Lower School, Lower School Counselor, and Kindergarten teachers. Tours will also be provided by the Admission Team. 

We’re pleased to offer the following Kindergarten Discovery Days during the 2021-2022 school year: 

  • Saturday, December 4, 9:00-10:00 am
  • Saturday January 22, 9:00-10:00 am

Please note that all applicants to Kindergarten are asked to attend one of our Kindergarten Discovery Days as part of the Admission process. 

Xperts Talk: A Webinar Series Exploring the McLean Method

You’ve heard that McLean School teaches the way students learn and the benefits of our abilities-driven model–the “why” of our educational approach. We want to give you the opportunity to learn more about the “how.” Take a deep dive into a topic of interest with our expert faculty. They’ll share best practices, interventions, and effective accommodations we use with our students. You’ll also have plenty of time to ask any questions you might have. We hope you’ll join us!
