A new school year has begun, and we are excited to have our halls filled with the laughter and chatter of happy students moving between classes. We are excited to once again visit classrooms and see our passionate, expert teachers working with our students and using engaging and interactive learning to bring subjects to life. And, we can't wait to see what will come as these talented Red-Tailed Hawks learn and grow during the 2022-23 school year.

While our students were on summer vacation, the Admissions team was busy preparing for the 2023-24 application cycle, and the start of school means that we are excited to begin the admissions process for the 2023-24 school year.

Your child's BASIS Independent McLean (BIM) journey begins here. As you explore our curriculum and community, it is our goal to show you how BIM can prepare your child to soar!
