Student Life

We don't believe in "boring."

Student life thrives every day on the Ridge.

With a huge selection of both on-campus and off-campus activities, day and boarding students at McCallie are never without an option. From performances and intramural competitions to social and service activities with our sister school, GPS, and weekend trips to activities in Chattanooga and around the region, boys always have an option to stay engaged and connected. More than 40 intramural competitions in every sport and pursuit imaginable fuel boys’ cooperative and competitive spirits. 

McCallie is a place where learning doesn't stop at the classroom door, and our commitment to our founding values means that service to others is valued deeply and the opportunities to pursue service stretch from our neighborhood to the other side of the world.
