  • 3:20 Club for K-4 Students (After School Care)

    The 3:20 Club welcomes students in K-4 for a structured afternoon of academic and extracurricular activities. Our goal is to provide activities that stimulate learning and enrich the school experience outside of the classroom. In order to achieve this goal, we feel group size is important; therefore, our activities average ten children per adult. Fall, Winter, and Spring sessions are available and require advanced registration and related fees.

  • Study Hall for Grades 5-8 Students (After School Care)

    The Middle School Study Hall is for students in grades 5-8 and is an important time for students to learn productive study habits and social skills. Homework is an essential part of Study Hall. Students are required to complete all homework and have it checked by an adult before they can begin another activity. If homework is not assigned, age appropriate academic related activities will be provided and students will be encouraged to participate in those activities during the academic time. To keep in line with school policy, we ask that students not bring their hand-held games.

  • Speech-Language Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Academic Coaching (Fee for Service School Day Support)

    McLean is pleased to offer the convenience of support services during the school day by our trained and qualified faculty. While these faculty members often support our students and teachers in the classroom, for those that would benefit from a one on one experience, we offer a fee for service program.

  • Strings

    Students in grade 3-12 have the opportunity to take one on one lessons from a qualified musician during the school day. Strings lessons are highly recommended for any student participating in a String Ensemble.
