On August 27, Blair Academy’s storied football program took a further step to enhance player safety when it hosted a season-opening “no-tackle” scrimmage against Belvidere and Kittatinny High Schools. Blair has a long-held policy of no-tackle practices, and the no-tackle scrimmage represents one of several innovative ways the School is looking to safeguard team members’ health and safety this season while continuing its highly competitive tradition.
Trustees, faculty and staff celebrated the beginning of the School’s 169th year at the annual Opening of School dinner on August 23. During the evening, Head of School Chris Fortunato lauded members of the community who had reached 25- and 10-year service milestones, thanking them for their longstanding dedication to the School and its students.
On Friday, August 19, Blair football players returned to campus for the 2016-2017 school year. The athletes moved into their dorms and met with head coach Jim Saylor before kicking off the fall season at their first practice.
One of the preeminent boarding schools in the United States, Blair Academy provides students with a superior college preparatory education and rich community life.
