The Spirit of McCallie
From its earliest days, McCallie has been a school that balanced a serious commitment to its mission to a spirit of fun, playfulness and adventure that sets McCallie apart.
That tradition lives on every day at McCallie, as you'll see below.
We love our school.
We love it enough to get this hyped up before our biggest rivalry games.
We laugh at ourselves. A lot.
On a ridge far, far away, the McCallie men embark on their journey to manhood guided by a cast of fun-loving mentors. See these mentors in action in McCallie Wars.
We live with passion.
In the fall of 2015, we gave two freshmen - Zyan Wynn and Joshua Belisle - cameras, and asked them to document their time at McCallie. They graduated as part of the class of 2019. This is their story of four years on the Ridge.
We have teachers who know how to have fun.
In the spring of 2020, faculty and staff came together (virtually) to create something fun for the students.

We have really creative middle schoolers.
We asked them to come up with a commercial for McCallie, and this is what they wrote. (Don't look for this during the Super Bowl, probably.)
We know how to take a day off.
Every spring, Duck Day appears, bringing a totally unannounced day of fun, food and... bellyflops. Check out this recap.
