Skills, Strategies, Sportsmanship & ChampionshipsAthletics

Sports provide wonderful opportunities to build positive social interactions and important life skills like perseverance, patience, and perspective taking – in addition to being an important energy release! We offer PE five days a week in our Lower and Middle Schools, when we introduce the important concepts of teamwork, skill building, conditioning, and sportsmanship. 

In Middle School, our Athletic Program includes interscholastic sports. In our Upper School, we offer Varsity and Junior Varsity squads. McLean competes with other independent schools in the greater Washington, DC area as a member of the Potomac Valley Athletic Conference (Edmund Burke School, Field School, Sandy Spring Friends School, Washington International School, and others). Our teams are competitive while also being inclusive, and it’s a formula that has served us well through many winning championship seasons.
