Tuition & Financial Aid

A Priceless Investment

Financing a McCallie education is a major investment in your son’s future. McCallie’s customized curriculum, personalized attention, opportunities for exploration, and superior faculty mean that the actual cost per student far exceeds the tuition. Annual giving and endowment revenue allows us to subsidize the cost of educating each one of our students. We are committed to making a McCallie education affordable for admitted students. Need-based aid and merit scholarship programs make McCallie more affordable for families across the country and abroad.
McCallie School fully supports all anti-discrimination laws and does not engage in any unlawful discrimination.
