Financial Aid and Tuition

March 18, 2020 

We understand that the pandemic is creating not only a health crisis, but it may have a financial impact on some of our families whose boys are currently enrolled and/or in the enrollment process for next school year. We will strive to do all we can reasonably do to work with families who are adversely impacted by this situation. Though our financial aid dollars are limited, we do want to know of a family’s specific change in circumstances and challenges and see if we are able to help as needs are demonstrated. We certainly want to partner with families on issues of enrollment and affordability. We recognize these are challenging and anxious times of uncertainty. We are working on a number of fronts, including financial challenges of families, as we navigate uncharted waters for a while. I invite you to be in touch with me about your specific circumstances, though please be patient as we work on this and other impacts of the pandemic. 

We are grateful to parents for sharing your boys with us and partnering with you. 

Stay safe and well.

A Message from the Financial Aid Office

We know that the cost of an independent school education is considerable, but the investment is invaluable. We are here to help you through the application process and beyond.

Our goal is to give each student the full McCallie experience by removing financial barriers.  Financial aid is in the form of grants that do not need to be paid back to the school.  We offer need-based grants as a means to provide access to all deserving boys from all backgrounds. 

McCallie will foster an environment where your son will love to learn and find the best version of himself. It will be a journey that is founded on an educational platform filled with opportunities and experiences. Help us help you make this opportunity a reality for your son and family.

Best regards,
Mercy Kealey
