“Before I attended McCallie, I thought that reading and writing were chores. At McCallie I discovered the joy of the written word.” -- McCallie Alum

How do boys learn to think clearly, write persuasively and read critically? First and foremost, boys learn through thinking clearly and critically about the world around them and their experiences in it and by taking the risk to share their insights about those experiences.

McCallie boys read a range of engaging works of literature and non-fiction that enriches both their analytical and creative skills. They are challenged through literature and class discussions to develop ethical opinions on a myriad of subjects and to defend those opinions logically, persuasively, and thoughtfully. By learning the fundamentals of the writing process and exploring a variety of challenging writing styles and audiences, boys learn to share their thoughts confidently and clearly with the world around them.
