The McNair Mini School is a program that values all facets of the student: intellectual, social and physical. The program is designed to challenge academically motivated students with an enriched course of studies in a cohesive setting. The curriculum is compressed and enriched to develop in each student critical thinking skills, creativity, and independence.
Just as intellectual progress is vital to each student’s future, so, too, is the social aspect of each student’s development. The group field activities are designed to foster the acquisition of essential skills: leadership, responsibility, initiative, cooperation, and mutual respect. Service to the community will be encouraged.
Although the students remain together for their core courses, they retain complete access to all the elective courses, facilities, clubs and teams at McNair. Mini School students play an important role in the McNair school community.
