Blair Academy offers everything to a student in order to have an excellent high school experience. Our family is blessed and thankful for Blair. I recommend Blair to the parents out there who are looking for the best school for their children. The teachers are wonderful, always available, helpful, enthusiastic and energetic. Academics will answer your child's needs to any level. Blair has so many clubs, activities, sports, and other resources that it can be overwhelming to decide. There is something for every student. It is up to them to pick and choose. My kids love the food at Blair, it is always fancy, delicious and health( especially for growing boys and girls). The diversity level at Blair allows students to have an excellent perspective in life. It is also fun to be a student at Blair. I see more people choosing Blair every day, after their extensive global search for schools.
Blair is, after meeting with 8 other boarding schools, by far the most well rounded school I have found. They aren't #1 in all sports, academics, or even facilities. But, what I find them #1 in is developing the full person.

They focus on helping students determine who they are and how they want to guide their life choices. They develop children into caring, well-rounded adolescents ready for their next phase of life.

I could cite many examples where my children learned time management, writing skills, science acumen, but that would have likely come from any great boarding school experience. What my 2 daughters achieved was an understanding of where they are in the world, what they believe in and a foundation with which to continue their growth and education once they leave Blair.
