It is with great pride that we share in this year’s grand finale of the BASIS Independent Schools’ academic program: Senior Projects, and we rejoice in their culmination: the Senior Showcase!
We are so proud of our Class of 2020 and honored to share their current list of college acceptances. Additional acceptances will continue to trickle in, however this list is too good to wait. Please join us in joyful congratulations for our graduates. Their hard work, intellectual curiosity, kindness, spirit, and ideals will carry them forward, and in these difficult times, their successes are a shining light of hope and perseverance.
The goal of any high school experience is to ensure students graduate with “college readiness.” But what does this readiness really look like?
AP exams are held the first two weeks of May, but school doesn’t get out until a month later, so it’s a common question: What do students in AP classes do after AP exams? Most classes do a cumulative paper or project to productively conclude the course; however immediately after AP Exams, all BASIS Independent McLean high school students participated in the College and Career Boot Camp (CCBC).
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.
