Life on the Ridge

LESSONS ARE NOT LIMITED to classroom time, nor are they merely extended onto athletic fields. Learning encompasses all aspects of a day, a week, a year -- it merely requires an open mind and an engaged spirit.

McCallie is not a place merely for classes and competition. McCallie is a community of young men learning they can make a difference, making important choices and experiencing life. Links in the menu on the right will take you to information on McCallie's varied and expansive afternoon and weekend activities programs, its coordinate program with Girls Preparatory School, an explanation of the school's emphasis on spiritual life, pages on college guidance, the library, the learning center, the writing center, and summer opportunities.
