From the Admissions Director: 15 Days Until the Early Admissions Deadline – There’s still time!

As we move deeper into fall and Thanksgiving approaches, the BIM character trait of the month is gratitude. It is one of my favorites! I continue to be grateful that my family is part of such a dynamic learning community. Nothing makes me more excited than seeing my son grow and thrive surrounded by so many wonderful students, teachers, and administrators. Being a Red-Tailed Hawk is truly inspiring!

And, there is still time to apply to join us as part of the Early Admissions Cycle. The Early Admissions application deadline of November 15 is only 15 days away

From the Admissions Director: What Are You Doing the Next 15 Days?

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.

From the Admissions Director: Launching the 2021-22 application (while still accepting for 2020-21)

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!
