Thoughts on why we wear the tie... and what it means to do so.
An Environment of Challenge and Support
McCallie's Upper School serves boys in grades 9-12, providing incredible depth and breadth in a curriculum designed to meet the needs of every student.
Our faculty is nationally-recognized, with more than two-thirds holding advanced degrees. They are also experienced: nearly half of the Upper School faculty have taught at McCallie for more than 15 years. They teach classes that are active and interactive: geared specifically to the ways that boys learn best.
The Upper School academic experience begins with new students and their parents at orientation, where we map out a multi-year plan for each student that will challenge them and support their academic growth. From there, boys have the support of our exceptional Learning Center team, along with access to the Caldwell Writing Center and an array of other resources.
Boys leave the Upper School ready for the academic challenges that college will present and then some, having developed resilience, self-awareness and a curiosity and passion for learning that will stay with them for life.
