The BJT or Op Amp device can never drive the output beyond the supply rails. (Vcc to Vee) Not possible. Even though they are called active devices, they are like 'servo'-controlled resistance and cannot boost the voltage like switched reactors (L) or transformers.
Transistor voltage amplifiers are voltage-control current-sinks (VCCS) which have high output impedance and thus voltage gain is proportional to the load resistance.
Since the Vbe vs IC is very nonlinear , it must be done with constant current sources for bias and done in many stages with methods that are more linear but lower gain.
The impedance is then reduced with several stages of current amplifiers or emitter followers with unity voltage gain.
