We're excited to meet you!
At McCallie, we educate boys to be men of high moral character, deep knowledge, intellectual curiosity, and personal excellence who become courageous leaders in their communities. We challenge them to embody our ideals of Honor, Truth and Duty and to lean into our motto of “Man’s chief end is to glorify God and to enjoy Him forever.” As boys live through their adolescent years with us, learning who they are and what they value, we provide unparalleled guidance, mentorship, and partnership for their journey. We prepare them not simply to thrive at outstanding universities around the country, but we equip them to lead in a diverse and dynamic world.
Everything that we do is designed for boys as we tap into and leverage their energy, adventurous spirit, and styles of learning that especially excite and resonate with them. McCallie boys become very close with one another as well as with their teachers, coaches, advisors, and dorm leaders. Their deep care for one another and their common experiences of learning and growing up together is the essence of the McCallie brotherhood. The McCallie brotherhood, we say, extends in a long blue line back to the founding of this great school in 1905. At graduation, boys lock arms as brothers, knowing that McCallie will always be part of them and with them as a resource and companion for life.
I am glad that you have found your way to McCallie and encourage you to spend some time discovering all that we have to offer. A boy can discover so many interests and passions here, learning as much in the classroom as on the sporting field or stage, dining hall or dorm. Please come visit us to see the beauty of our campus and feel the kindness, closeness, and enthusiasm of our community.
