Where "Active" and "Inquisitive" Are Good Things

Studies suggest that the pre-teen years are when boys face the highest risk of losing their interest in school. McCallie's Middle School program is designed specifically to engage and motivate the young boy. Our curriculum develops a boy's academic fundamentals and nurtures his love of learning and curiosity about the world. 

Beginning with Middle School 101, a class designed to help him navigate the transition from elementary school to middle school, a middle school boy develops and grows by leaps and bounds.

The middle school faculty are engaged and committed. They have a passion for teaching at the middle school level and a dedication McCallie's mission that is reflected in the energy they bring to the classroom every day of the school year. Life in McDonald Hall will keep the McCallie middle school boys active and inquisitive and teach him that he is an important piece in a larger community puzzle. He will learn that his efforts in class, his relationship with his peers, and his involvement in the community, will result in impressive results as he prepares for the academic and social challenges of his upcoming high school years.

We look forward to working with you and your middle school boys!
