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.
Review Blair Academy
When you go to other preppy boarding schools in the Northeast, you notice a stuck-up, over-competitive attitude that can be extremely unattractive. At Blair, however, everyone wants to help each other succeed. It sounds kind of corny, but the community at Blair Academy is stronger than at any other school. The academics are superb and challenging, the athletic facilities are top-notch, the arts opportunities are amazing, and the administration is approachable and reasonable. Overall, this school is unmatched in its excellence.
The health policies and regulations are pretty reasonable. The nurses are usually very nice. However, the health center is a very old building that needs a lot of work done. Also, there is limited space in the health center, so when an illness goes around the school, the beds in the health center fill up very quickly. The security, on the other hand, is great. Most security guards are very nice.
