The McCallie School is an all boys school, that is a day and boarding school. My experience at this school has been fantastic, and it has shaped me into a man just like the motto states "Inspiring Boys. Building Men." Coming to the ridge and moving away from home was at first terrifying, but the faculty and students brought me in with open arms. From the friday night football games, to grinding out test I have made more memories than anyone else in a lifetime, and McCallie has propelled me for the challenges ahead in college. No matter how cliché it may sound I wouldn't change my 4 years at McCallie for anything in the world, it is a life changing experience. If I were a parent with a boy soon entering middle school or high school, I would most definitely look into McCallie and at least give the admissions office a phone call. It is the best decision a person could ever make!

I have been at McCallie since my 6th-grade year, and I fell in love with this school. The environment is welcoming, the food is amazing, and the diversity is present throughout the school. However, I still don't feel too safe with the security that we have at the moment. But overall, this school is amazing!
I am the mother of three and all have attended 3 different boarding schools. My son was an average student when he entered McCallie in the 9th grade. He is a senior and has worked very hard and with the help of his teachers and the writing center, he has a 3.9 average! This school can take an average child and support him into being whatever he wants to be.
