Our first day of school is just six short days away. On Monday, August 29 we will kick off our founding year at BASIS Independent McLean by welcoming almost 300 students to our beautiful 11 acre property in the heart of Tysons Corner. While we are still accepting new applications for this school year in select grades, our Admissions team is already looking to the next cycle with admissions for the 2017-18 school year opening on Thursday, September 1. Our process is selective and has multiple steps to ensure we get to know our families and vice versa, so start early and learn more today. 067B5743-2500002877-O.jpg
