Parents

Welcome to Blair Academy’s Parent Portal, where prospective parents can learn about the School and where parents of current Blair students can access a variety of resources after signing in with their username and password.

Parents and families of Blair students are an important part of our community and we welcome your participation and input. The public part of this site features news and events of interest to parents, while the password-protected section for current parents includes searchable student, parent and faculty directories; customizable news and calendar feeds; and important student-information forms that need to be submitted annually to various Blair departments. 

To keep current parents further connected, Blair publishes a monthly e-newsletter, the Parents’ Post, and the Blair Bulletin, which is sent to Blair alumni, friends and supporters two times a year.

Questions? Please contact Susan Long, assistant director of advancement for parent relations, at (888) 542-5247 (option 4); (908) 362-6121, ext. 5705; or longs@blair.edu.
