Parents Association


McLean School Parents Association (PA) is happy to have you! As a parent of an enrolled McLean student you are already a member of the PA. 
The PA supports a number of PA representatives in each division and a variety of cornerstone events throughout the year ranging from festive celebrations to community building events to service learning partnerships to parent education workshops. The PA actively engages volunteers with all schedules from those who are able to chair year-long events to those who can only work from their own home or office.
I am so grateful for the opportunity to be your next Parents Association President during such an exciting, transformational time for our school. The PA is proud to contribute to the lives of McLean parents, students, faculty, and staff. On behalf of the PA Board, we look forward to partnering with the community while revisiting old friends and making new friends. We hope you join us at these key events for fun, for stewardship, and to support the McLean mission.

K-12 College Preparatory School Supporting Bright Students’ Individual Strengths and Challenges.

McLean School is an independent, co-educational, K-12 day school serving Maryland, Washington, and Virginia. McLean has for over sixty years been helping students realize their full potential by providing a comprehensive college preparatory program that emphasizes small classes and differentiated instruction. We embrace both traditional learners and ones with mild to moderate learning challenges – dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, ADHD, and challenges related to anxiety and executive functioning. Many of our students excel in some areas while benefiting from support in others.
