It is an exciting time of year in Admissions! We are wrapping up the Regular Admissions Cycle and beginning Rolling Admissions. There is still time to begin and submit an application for the 2022-23 school year.
As we settle into the wintery, snowy month of February, it is an exciting time to be a Red-Tailed Hawk. From our seniors wrapping up their final Capstone classes before leaving campus to complete their Senior Projects to our Early Learning Program celebrating the 100th day of school, change, growth, and discovery are all around us.
In the Admissions world, the Regular Admissions deadline has passed, and over the next month, the Admissions Committee will read applications in preparation for the Regular Admissions decision release date of March 4. Plus, we have already opened the Rolling Admissions cycle.
As we replace our jack-o-lanterns with harvest pumpkins and prepare for the season of thanksgiving, I am thankful to be part of such a dynamic learning community. Here, at BASIS Independent McLean, I am surrounded by students, teachers, and administrators who inspire me each day.
As we shared our community with you – virtually - this year, I was able to spend even more time in classrooms – connecting and learning from our teacher and students. My hope is that their stories, their learning, and their fun have inspired your family to join us.
Since mid-March (and for some of us even before), the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted our lives and changed the way that we operate on a daily bases. From a trip to the grocery store to a summer family vacation, each of our daily tasks or annual events require additional thought and preparation.
As we excitedly prepare to return to campus, Admissions is busy preparing a robust virtual experience to help new families learn more about our curriculum and community. This year will be a little different. As we work to provide a safe and healthy learning environment for our Red-Tails Hawks, our Admissions team, in addition to our students, parents, teachers, and other administrators, are working tirelessly to design virtual, informational events to help you get to know us better!
We invite you to join our Open House on Saturday, October 26 from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM. Our Open House is the best way to discover our talented teachers, learn about our advanced curriculum, and meet our dynamic students and parents!
We invite you to join us at our Open House for age 2–grade 12 on Saturday, November 3 from 10 AM to 12 PM.* Our Open House is the best way to discover our amazing teachers, learn about our advanced curriculum, and meet our fantastic current students and parents!
The school year just began, but Admissions has been busy for weeks preparing for the next school year! We, at BASIS Independent McLean, are excited to announce the launch of our application for the 2019-20 school year. We are accepting applications for PreK (three year olds) through grade 10.
Inspired by the blissful feeling of uncovering connections, our blog Eureka! McLean is about sharing moments that capture the essence of what it is to be a BASIS Independent student, teacher, administrator, or family.
