Modern and Classical Languages

To begin the study of a new language is to step into a new world. 

To truly master a new language is to walk among its people, its country side in order to understand, communicate, and appreciate the cultures of those who speak the language.

The Modern and Classical Language Department of McCallie supports the active learning needs of boys by emphasizing active participation and communication. Boys participate in a language by speaking, listening, reading, and writing it, using materials that are authentic to the cultures of the language.Through language immersion in the classroom, boys learn to communicate effectively in the target language.
