McCallie Believes...

  • Our Christian tradition builds a strong moral foundation and a sense of civic and social duty.
  • Personal integrity, as expressed in the Honor Code, is central to our life as a community.
  • Our teachers should model a lifelong love of learning and intellectual growth and should inspire students to develop the same.
  • The spiritual growth of all students is enhanced by instilling a respect for and an understanding of other religions and faiths.
  • The development and practice of leadership and citizenship skills are critically important.
  • Every individual should be treated with dignity.
  • Racial, ethnic, religious, and economic diversity enhances our school community.
  • Graduates should be skillful, as individuals and in groups, at setting and achieving clear goals and at developing strategies to solve problems.
  • Boys learn in different ways, have different ways of demonstrating abilities, and require a variety of instructional approaches and assessment strategies in order to thrive.
  • Graduates should be men of compassion and moral courage.
  • Everyone has a responsibility to be a positive role model.
  • An all-boys environment enhances a boy’s comfort and confidence in exploring a range of interests and in developing competencies.
  • Boys are active and need opportunities to channel their energies in constructive ways.
  • Boys should be challenged and encouraged to be skilled readers, writers, speakers, and listeners.
  • Higher order thinking skills are enhanced by a program which emphasizes discovery and experiential learning.
