MacLaren Society

MacLaren Society Logo

At Thomas MacLaren School, we believe that all human beings can know truth, create beauty, and practice goodness. The MacLaren Society is dedicated to bringing this pursuit to the broader Colorado Springs community through the lenses of the humanities, the sciences, and the arts.

MacLaren Society events are free of charge and are for adults and MacLaren upperclassmen.
