BINS McLean Great Hall.jpgA common question prospective families ask us is what type of individual our program develops. This Saturday, you will have a chance to find out!

We are looking forward to our highly-anticipated Alumni Panel this Saturday, March 18 at 12:30 PM!

Families will have a unique opportunity to meet three BASIS.ed alumni from the Washington Post’s #1 ranked high school in the country, two years in a row. Hear their experience, ask questions, and gain a better understanding of the type of student that graduates from our program. Our Head of School, Mr. Sean Aiken, will lead the panel discussion.

Currently attending Duke University, Virginia Tech and Haverford College, these former BASIS.ed students will share their perspectives on their high school years.  Leading up to March 18, we will give you a sneak peek of some of the alumni you will meet.

What advice to you have for families considering BASIS Independent McLean?
Go to BASIS Independent McLean!  Honestly.  It was challenging at times but it's the best decision I've ever made.  There were all kinds of people in my graduating class and each one went on to do very different but amazing things.  Whether you are more artistically inclined, an entrepreneur, or a science kid like myself, you can make BASIS Independent McLean fit your goals.  There is so much opportunity at BASIS.ed and the staff and teachers are there to make it happen.
