Our Academic Philosophy

Improve Your Potential

Lifelong learners are built. They learn to cherish curiosity and endure through setbacks and failures. They have encouraging adult mentors who push them to strive but support them when they struggle. They have peers who push themselves not for the sake of competition, but for the goal of improvement. 

At McCallie, you will have knowledgeable and inspiring teachers, ambitious but principled brothers, and a 24-7 community that demands your best efforts and seeks to work with you to make you a better learner, a better person, a future leader. Your school experience will aim to prepare you for a world unlike anything we can imagine.
