Day & Boarding School Programs for Boys in Middle & High School:

Upper School Curriculum (Grades 9-12):

Art:
Boys learn by doing, creating, shaping. At McCallie boys weld, throw pots, paint, draw, and photograph. After exposing students to the basics in skills and ideas, McCallie boys have a wide variety of opportunities to follow their artistic passions.

Bible:
The boys in McCallie’s Bible classes learn how to “wrestle with angels” as they discuss how to make decisions in the context of faith when faced with the complexity and ambiguity of daily life. Biblical Archaeology students discover the relationship between history and the Bible, as they practice the methodology of archaeology or try their hand at creating a modern day artifact and then connect it to the art, architecture, culture, and history of Middle Eastern civilizations. The essential questions which all religions seek to address are the basis of the study of World Religions. Boys discuss the scriptures, traditions and backgrounds of the major monotheistic religions and the major eastern religion in order to understand both their own faith traditions and the faith traditions of others.

English:
McCallie boys read a range of engaging works of literature and non-fiction that enriches both their analytical and creative skills. They are challenged through literature and class discussions to develop ethical opinions on a myriad of subjects and to defend those opinions logically, persuasively, and thoughtfully. By learning the fundamentals of the writing process and exploring a variety of challenging writing styles and audiences, boys learn to share their thoughts confidently and clearly with the world around them.

Foreign Language:
The Foreign Language Department at McCallie supports the active learning needs of boys through a program that stresses active participation and communication. Boys at McCallie participate in a language by speaking, listening, reading, and writing, using materials that are authentic to the culture of the language. Through a process of language immersion in the classroom, boys learn to communicate effectively in the target language.

History:
Boys at McCallie learn to assess evidence concerning the impact of events, people, and ideas and to analyze the conflicting interpretations of them. In the process they also learn how nations have solved problems in the past and how that can provide insight into the solutions to problems in the present.

Math:
At McCallie, teachers begin with real-life questions and teach boys how to translate abstract, verbal problems into mathematical symbols and structures of numbers and functions to reach useful solutions. From the beginning algebra class to the most advanced course (3 semesters above AP Calculus), the main goal is to reveal the usefulness of mathematical thought and the power of being able to manipulate numbers, variables, and functions. Boys will also develop facility with the most recent technologies: database management, graphing calculators, geometry sketchpad, etc.

Music:
After exposing students to the basics in skills and ideas, McCallie boys have a wide variety of opportunities to follow their artistic passions. The faculty of the music department encourages all ranges of ability and believes that through practice and study all boys can acquire the skills to be proficient musicians.

Science:
Boys’ natural curiosity leads them to ask, “How does this work?” The passion for answers to that question begins with mixing chemicals for a plaster of paris volcano and catching frogs, but it moves over time toward periodic tables and dissection. Today’s globally interdependent, scientifically-driven world requires a level of scientific literacy significantly more advanced than periodic tables and dissection, however. From atmospheric warming challenges to newly-discovered, genetically-based medical advances, the increasingly complex issues demand the study of not only the scientific facts and processes of each discrete area of biology, chemistry, and physics, but also of the connections to real life applications and scenarios.

Miscellaneous:
Introduction to Java Programming:
This course is offered in preparation for Advanced Placement Computer Science. Java is the language used in the AP Computer Science exam. It is also the language chosen by many college computer science departments for a first course in computer programming. This course will focus on algorithm development and program logic, introduction to Java classes, control structures, file input/output, Boolean logic, arrays, and Java functions. Students must have evening access to a Windows compatible computer and E-mail. Semester Course; spring only. Prerequisite: Visual BASIC or approval of instructor.Grade: 10-12

Honors Computer Science with Robotics:
This challenging course is for students who are currently enrolled in an honors math or science class at McCallie. Students will be assigned to a group that will construct a robot. The students will program the robot to perform tasks in order to learn basic programming skills and to appreciate choices made in machine design. The students will be required to maintain an engineering notebook to learn how to properly document the design process. Grades 9 – 12.

AP Computer Science A:
The AP Java study is for the student that has completed the Introduction to Java and wants to dig deeper into the world of computer programming. The class will allow the student to sharpen his skills in basic algorithms while learning new algorithms and data structures. The class has two main sub-studies. The first part examines classes, which examines interfaces, abstract classes, and parent/child structure. The second part studies data structures, including maps, queues, arrays, stacks, lists, and sets. Prerequisite: Introduction to Java Programming or teacher permission.

Public Speaking:
In Public Speaking students study the nature of oral communication while they develop effective speaking skills. Emphasis is on the extemporaneous style of speaking. The students will have several prepared presentations and several impromptu presentations. Video tape recordings are used to enhance the learning process. Speeches receive written or oral critiques from the instructor. Due to the length of this course, mastery may not be achieved, but a basic understanding of the communication process will be understood. Semester Course; meets one quarter for 1/4 credit. Required of all freshmen and new sophomores.Grade: 9-10

Health:
Health is a freshman level course designed to teach students the information they will need in order to make the best decisions for their future in an increasingly complex world. The course will cover human sexuality, personal safety, mental health, substance use and abuse, nutrition, and first aid. Quarter Course: meets first or second quarter in one semester for 1/4 Credit. Required for all freshmen.Grade: 9

Introduction to Sports Medicine:
The human body is a complex structure that takes years to completely understand. This class will give the student a better understanding of how the human body works and what professions are out there in the world of sports medicine. The student will engage in intriguing lectures and be exposed to a wide array of guest speakers. This class would be a great advantage for the student wanting to study sports medicine in college or to attend medical school, and that earlier exposure to anatomy, physiology, and medical terminology would put him ahead of the game.
