The extracurriculars at Blair Academy are very strong. Students are allowed to create their own clubs with varying levels of commitment. The administration has to sign off on any club proposals, but students don't really come up with anything the administration would reject. Every student is required to play at least two team sports each year, with exceptions for prominent actors and artists. Due to the sports requirement, most people at Blair are very fit. If you don't come to Blair with a six-pack, you will leave with one. The arts are extremely strong, too. I participate in two theatre productions each year and can say that the theatre program is a wonderful place for beginners and veterans alike. If you're new to theatre, you can easily come in and get a large role if you have any natural talent, or be a background character if you just want to be part of the production. Those that are serious about acting are also well-served because there are four plays a year, and many opportunities for lead roles. Overall, the extracurriculars are fantastic at Blair.
