History

The mission of the McCallie School History Department is to equip boys with the abilities and knowledge to help them draw upon the past as a source of wisdom and understanding for the present. We hope to guide our students into becoming informed, responsible citizens of both their nation and their world. To this end, the department will maintain a vibrant intellectual atmosphere, preserve an academically challenging curriculum, and employ the best practices of both teaching and learning.

All McCallie School students gain foundational knowledge and awareness through the survey courses of World History and US History. In addition, a constantly-evolving catalog of semester-long electives allows boys to make in-depth study of focused topics.

McCallie's history classes foster student-teacher and student-student interaction, and they allow boys to practice the art of history within a challenging yet comfortable environment. All courses include a strong emphasis on writing skills and the critical use of primary sources.
