I have loved McCallie because it is a place that allows you to learn from your failures. Through trial and error, I was able to find my passion for running. I wasn’t scared to try multiple sports because I knew if I failed it wasn’t going to define me.

The world tells boys from a young age that failure is never an option, and that success at all costs is something men must pursue. At McCallie, we believe that boys thrive the most when they have room to try and to fail, and that there's value in seeking out new challenges. 

McCallie is a place where you are not defined by what goes wrong, but by the courage to seek out what is right.
