Boy Visit Days
Prospective Upper and Middle School applicants experience a day in the life of a McCallie student first hand. Each visitor will be paired with a host student to attend classes, tour campus, and enjoy lunch. Included in his visit will be an informal, sit-down conversation with a member of our admission team. This is an opportunity for boys to get a feel for campus as they interact with McCallie students and teachers while getting a feel for campus.
Parents of middle school visitors may arrive at 11:45 for a campus tour that will wrap up in time to pick up their son as he finishes his day.

Our Activities Fair will give you a window to view how McCallie boys grow in every way. While some boys may literally grow a foot in height during their time at McCallie, they all have opportunities to develop academically, socially, physically and spiritually. Boys at McCallie work hard and play hard. We invite you for a light lunch and a lively time as you visit with directors, coaches and students from our extracurricular offerings. It is a great chance to see how our boys have fun outside of class.
