Education

McLean’s students are served by Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS). FCPS students post the highest standardized test scores in the region, and the school system provides a world-class education at a lower cost per-pupil than neighboring jurisdictions. The 12th-largest school system in the United States with 239 schools and centers countywide, FCPS is staffed by a veteran core of administrators and teachers.

The school system maintains a low student-to-teacher ratio, enabling it to meet the individual needs of every student. It fosters excellent communication between the administration and an involved community of active parent-school organizations.

Ninety-two percent of FCPS high school graduates continue their education at the postsecondary level. Opportunities for certificates, four-year degrees and graduate level work exist in the numerous colleges and universities throughout the region. Nearby Northern Virginia Community College is the largest college in Virginia and the third largest multi-campus community college in the country. A fully accredited, two-year community college, NVCC offers over 150 programs of study, and has a current enrollment of almost 61,000 students. NVCC provides occupational and technical programs and support for transfer to four-year colleges, along with low tuition rates for Virginia residents and eligible Washington, DC residents.

Other nearby campuses include George Mason University (which offers more than 100 degree programs), George Washington University’s Virginia campus (which boasts an internationally-respected graduate education and research center that offers 16 master’s and doctoral degree programs), Marymount University (a liberal arts institution that offers 51 academic programs) and Strayer College (offering master’s, bachelor’s and associate degrees in business and business-related fields). Other universities located conveniently for McLean residents include Georgetown University, American University and the University of Maryland.
