Academics

Superior academic preparation is at the heart of the Blair experience.

Learning at Blair is a rigorous, creative and collaborative process, one that increasingly urges you to pursue your own academic interests and seek knowledge without limits. Teachers partner closely with you and encourage you to meet the concrete and abstract challenges that learning and inquiry demand. Together, you explore the questions, problems and ideas that inspire you to seek deeper understanding of a subject. Hard work and the mentorship of Blair’s faculty will make you a better student than you ever thought you could be.
