Main Application and Parent Statement
Please complete and submit the online application. The parental statement is intended to assist in our understanding of the applicant’s individual needs as well as your concerns and educational objectives. Be sure to highlight any unique talents, interests, extracurricular experiences, skills, or accolades.
Teacher Recommendation Form
McCallie requires recommendations from all applicants’ current Math and English teachers. If the applicant has only one teacher, the current teacher and the previous year’s teacher should each complete a recommendation form. We ask that students have a teacher for at least two months before asking him or her to complete a recommendation form. Personal recommendations are optional and may be submitted at any time.
The Common Teacher Recommendation form is accepted by most leading prep schools in Chattanooga. Make sure to list all the schools to which your son will apply in the space provided in the parent section. The teacher can simply fill out the form once, and then send copies to the listed schools.
Request for Transcript and School Evaluation
The Transcript Form should be submitted to the school at the end of a student’s first semester. Families must also include a copy of the applicant’s most recent standardized testing and most recent, semester-ending, report card.
McCallie offers a variety of events to help aquaint each family with our community. Please see our Events & Travel page for key dates and events.
All day applicants are required to take the Independent School Entrance Examination (ISEE). You may also send us a copy of his most recent standardized testing (TCAP, ITBS, CAT). Our ISEE test center number and school code are 430315.
