Visit McLean

Visit McLean

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.

Open House

Come visit campus and learn about our transformative approach to education from our Head of School and then attend a Lower School (K-4), Middle School (grades 5-8), or Upper School (grades 9-12) Information Session. You’ll enjoy a guided tour of the school, along with meaningful opportunities to connect with faculty, parents, and current students.

We’re pleased to offer the following Open House dates:

  • Saturday, December 9, 9:00-11:00 am (Entering Kindergarten-Grade 12)
  • Thursday, January 9, 9:00-11:00 am (Entering Kindergarten-Grade 12)

Students in grades 5-11 are welcome to attend Open Houses.

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 take place from 9:00-10:00 am, and will be held on select days during the 2023-2024 school year

Individual Tours

A member of the Admission Team would be delighted to connect with you and give you a tour of our campus and share more about McLean’s transformative approach to teaching. Individual tours are offered on Fridays. Please contact 240.395.0698 to schedule your tour.

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!
