Tornado Term

What is Tornado Term?

Learning happens in a variety of ways at McCallie. Education is more than about what is found in the textbook; it is a combination of exploration, contemplation, reflection, and experimentation. That is the inspiration for Tornado Term - two weeks of non-traditional, hands-on, experiential learning in the Upper School.

Beginning in 2017, "T-Term" has seen McCallie men hiking to waterfalls, serving the less fortunate, learning to cook, firing off homemade rockets, driving electric cars, camping in the wilderness, and more since its inception. For Tornado Term 2022, Upper School students will choose from many different course offerings covering a wide variety of topics. Many courses include outside speakers, project-based learning and off-campus travel. T-Term will take place during the first two weeks in January after returning from the holiday break.
