The McCallie School is a boys college-preparatory school located on Missionary Ridge in Chattanooga, Tennessee, United States. The school was founded in 1905 and now has 250 boarding students in grades 9-12 and 669 day students in grades 6-12.
Brothers Spencer Jarnigan and James "Park" McCallie founded the school in 1905, which remained under the control of the family until a Board of Trustees assumed management of the school in 1937.
Founded as an all-boys school, McCallie became a military school in the wake of World War I, with students wearing uniforms and participating in military drills.
In 1970, McCallie dropped its military program as a result of admission challenges during the Vietnam era.
The school employs 140 full-time faculty members  and offers a college preparatory curriculum. The student-to-teacher ratio is 8:1, with an average class size of 14.
The school offers 19 Advanced Placement classes, as well as additional classes at levels beyond AP in math, science and English.
In addition to regular classes in English, math, science, history, foreign language, Bible and related courses, McCallie offers more than 20 music and arts classes, and students are required to take a certain number of arts and music classes to graduate.
McCallie’s 6-12th grade student body consists of 936 students. Of these, approximately 250 are boarding students hailing from 22 different states and 10 foreign countries. All boarding students are in grades 9-12. 268 Middle School day students comprise grades 6-8.
McCallie's campus consists of 110 acres (44.5 ha) on the western slope of Missionary Ridge, the site of a major battle during the American Civil War. It is located 3 miles (4.8 km) east of downtown Chattanooga.
McCallie fields 14 varsity sports teams and competes in the Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association (TSSAA) in football, cross country, track and field, basketball, golf, bowling, tennis, wrestling, baseball and soccer. The school competes on the varsity level in non-TSSAA sports, including crew, lacrosse, swimming, diving and climbing. 
McCallie's endowment is approximately $137 million. In the 2014 fiscal year, the school's total revenue was $34,411,708 and total expenses equaled $36,660,300. Of these expenditures, 72.2% went toward program expenses.
