UNDERSTANDING BOYS is a symposium organized to equip parents, educators and others with research, best practices and practical ideas for helping boys to thrive in school and on their journey to manhood.
Boys today are often adrift, disengaged, and underperforming. What can parents, educators and youth leaders do to challenge and inspire them and help them grow into men of honor, integrity and excellence?
Join several McCallie administrators and leaders as they share research, experiences, best practices and ideas that McCallie has learned in its 109 years of developing boys.
"I believe in high standards and hard work. McCallie is not a school of short-cuts and bail-outs, glitz or glamour. McCallie has always been a school of 'let's roll up our sleeves and get to work.'" A. Lee Burns III '87, Headmaster
McCallie is an All-Boys Private Boarding School and Day School, a Christian-based College Prep School. McCallie seeks out and accepts boys from all ethnic, racial, religious, and socioeconomic backgrounds and places a high value on a diverse student body.
