Academic Resources

Boys in Lebovitz Resource Center

McCallie is not a mistake-free environment.

Boys mess up. Our job is to, whenever possible, teach them and help them to avoid repeating those mistakes. McCallie demands much from its students, but we recognize that teaching adolescent boys requires opportunities to redeem themselves, to learn from their mistakes, to improve. The front line of all academic experience is the classroom teacher, but we also provide outstanding outside-the-classroom academic resources and a stellar staff.

The Lebovitz Resource Center, also known as the Middle School Library, also serves as the center for academic counselors and tutors. Led by Middle School Academic Counselor Tammy Barber, the aim is to provide boys who are struggling to adjust to McCallie's expectations, need assistance in a particular subject, or need help in organizing and managing their school day.

The Middle School also has a full-time dedicated guidance counselor, Cindy McCroskey.

Lebovitz Resource Center

The Lebovitz Resource Center is located on the second floor of McDonald Hall and houses a collection of books and magazines that support the McCallie curriculum and the personal interests of students and faculty. Of particular interest to parents is our collection of books on boys.

Networked PCs provide direct Internet access and Chromebooks are available for checkout. We subscribe to numerous reference ebooks, research databases, and a collection of ebooks and audiobooks for pleasure reading. You may access many of these research databases from home. For valuable information on ebooks, research databases, citing sources, and search engines as well as information on resources for middle school projects, check the Library Homepage.

Mission Statement

Our Mission is to provide a welcoming atmosphere where middle school students and faculty can read, study and do research. The Library also supports the McCallie curriculum by providing a variety of quality and print and digital resources.
