McLaren Hall is an educational center dedicated to providing enriching and challenging programs to gifted and talented students. The fall and spring programs are conducted on Saturday mornings at the Dobbs Ferry campus of Mercy College, New York. The programs are designed to give gifted and talented students a place where they can interact with other students of their ages and ability in an academically rich setting and one where they will feel comfortable socially.
Courses offered give students the opportunity to think outside of the box in creative and imaginative ways, and at the same time the instructors will challenge them with material that is both different to regular school and interesting to inquiring minds. There is an emphasis on learning as being an enjoyable experience and students are not forced to do homework outside of the actual time they spend in class.
