International Students


Dear Families,
 
Welcome and thank you for your interest in McLean School’s vibrant college preparatory Upper School, serving students in grades 9-12. McLean resides just outside of the nation’s capital, Washington, DC, and offers a rigorous yet supportive academic program of AP, honors, and college-prep courses. Our students transition successfully to many excellent colleges and universities across the United States.
 
McLean is a community of learners where the focus is on the whole person – not just on test scores or transcripts. Upper School teachers provide a safe, caring, and nurturing environment where students thrive academically, emotionally, and socially. We allow our students to take healthy risks by stretching themselves academically and by taking on leadership positions. By the time they graduate, our students have honed their self-advocacy skills, they know their learning strengths and challenges, and they have developed many strategies to be successful. Our graduates are confident learners who understand how they learn best.
 
Upper School students are also involved in numerous club offerings, Athletics, Visual and Performing Arts, as well as Service Projects. These opportunities allow our students to grow socially and emotionally as they prepare for college.
 
McLean welcomes your application – and we’ll help you navigate our Admission process coordinated through IEO, International Educational Opportunties, which offers a comprehensive package. We are looking forward to sharing the McLean experience with you!
 
Sincerely,

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.
