McCallie faculty do more than just deliver lectures—they engage students in discussions that are active and interactive. They also build relationships with students that last beyond the end of the semester— McCallie alumni regularly point to the mentoring and friendships of faculty as the most important part of their McCallie experience.
Learning is guided by teachers and advisors who see their work as a calling and who care first and foremost about their boys. Boys are inspired to give their best effort because they know and feel that passion. The comprehensive and challenging curriculum is carefully designed to develop the skills, knowledge, habits and mindsets needed to thrive and lead in today’s dynamic world.
Boys have unique ways of learning and developing. Everything we do at McCallie is customized to make boys’ learning exciting, engaging and efficient. We carefully study research about how boys’ brains are wired and how they learn. Classrooms are active, hands-on and often messy, with opportunities for movement, collaboration, and crashing into ideas—and sometimes even each other.
