Coed Life

The Best of Both Worlds

The purpose of the coeducational connection between McCallie and Girls Preparatory School (GPS) is to offer both communities varied opportunities to interact with one another. McCallie and GPS partner in a Coordinate Program that maintains the strengths of each school's single-gender educational program, upholding each school's unique traditions. At the same time McCallie and GPS provide students activities where the "all-boys" and the "all-girls" schools can interact.

The Coordinate Program strives to maintain the connections that exist between the schools and improve offerings for our students to enrich their educational and growth experiences. To that end, the goal of the program is to provide a safe and natural setting for the students to meet the opposite sex, and to do so with age-appropriate activities.

The Coordinate Program offers activities and events designed to appeal to the wide variety of student interests. The major components of the Coordinate Program include:
  • Social-Participative-Interactive
  • Fine Arts
  • Academic-Learning 
  • Student Leadership
  • Community Service
  • Sports 
  • Outdoor Programs

There is a strong bond between McCallie and GPS. The friendships formed are often life-long and are an important part of preparing our students for future relationships.

The Coordinate Program does "coordinate" which by definition means to: bring together, to match up, to synchronize. It does this with both students at McCallie (all-boys) and GPS (all-girls). The Coordinate Program is at the heart the connection between the two schools.

The McCallie-GPS Coordinate Program: to share, learn, grow, make memories, enrich your experiences, interact, and form long-lasting friendships.
