Financial aid consists of funds given to families who demonstrate a financial need for assistance with tuition expenses at McCallie. Funds are made available by hundreds of donors who are interested in making a McCallie education available to outstanding boys who would otherwise be unable to afford such an opportunity.
Anyone can apply for financial aid, but only students who have been accepted to McCallie and demonstrate financial need, as determined by the School and Student Services (SSS) of NAIS, can be considered.
Changes in financial status may affect the size of your award. Therefore, a new financial aid application must be filed with School and Student Services (SSS) by NAIS each year. Families are strongly encouraged to complete financial aid applications with required documentation as soon as possible to be considered for awards.
To determine need, McCallie uses School and Student Services (SSS) by NAIS to calculate Financial Aid. This service uses information from the Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS) which asks for income, expenses, assets, and liabilities. The family completes and submits a PFS form online and request a copy to be sent to McCallie by entering our school code 4744. SSS computes this information and determines an estimated need. SSS sends the Report of Family Contribution (RFC) to McCallie. McCallie’s Financial Aid Committee uses this estimate as a guideline in making awards.
Submit documentation to the School and Student Services (SSS) by NAIS as they become available. You will be able to upload all required documentation to SSS. You can also mail copies of the required documents to SSS directly. Please do not send copies to McCallie. It is helpful to use your paystub for approximating annual income on the PFS if W-2’s are not available.
McCallie expects both the custodial and non-custodial parents to participate in the support of their son at McCallie. It is up to all parties involved to communicate and participate in good faith in their sponsibilities. Custodial and non-custodial parents will be expected to submit a financial aid form.
Each award is individualized based upon the financial need of the family and the strength of the applicants file. An applicant’s file reflects academic ability, extracurricular involvement, character and demonstrated leadership.
Each financial aid recipient is expected to maintain the highest academic standards for himself, to conduct himself in a responsible and honorable manner, and to play an active role in the daily life of the school community. Failure to meet these expectations will result in review of financial assistance by the Financial Aid Committee mid-year and/or at the end of the school year.
The Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association (TSSAA) prohibits varsity athletes from receiving financial aid or merit awards in excess of demonstrated need. (This does not apply to non-TSSAA sports such as Climbing, Crew, Lacrosse and Swimming.)
