Weekend Activities

McCallie student life: students at School of Rock musical

McCallie student life: students hiking in Great Smoky Mountains

Our outdoor excursions will take you to the highest heights, like Mt. LeConte in the Great Smoky Mountains!

Sometimes the best activities are the ones right on campus, like intramural competitions!

Lazy Saturday? No Chance.

McCallie's Weekend Activities programs ensure that our students always have access to exciting events, great competitions, and all of the fun that Chattanooga has to offer.

Our activities run the gamut from regular shuttle buses to movie theatres and shopping around Chattanooga to outdoor excursions in the Great Smoky Mountains and trips to concerts and sporting events throughout the region. We regularly offer fan buses to McCallie sporting events at other schools so that the Blue Tornado can enjoy a home field advantage wherever they play.

The McCSat program is available to students of all grades - middle and upper school, day and boarding - and provides a huge array of options to choose from!


For boarding students, two additional programs ramp up the activity level. 

For freshmen and sophomores, McCSat is designed to help them stay engaged in all of the opportunities McCallie offers. 9th grade boarding students must earn 16 McCSat credits. 10th grade boarding students must earn 8 McCSat Credits.
