Blair Academy’s annual Headmasters’ Societies Games kick off this week, marking the 21st installment of this spirited School tradition. Over the years, this late-February competition has become a favorite event among students and faculty alike, evolving to feature over 60 competitions spread across six action-packed days. While the challenges have changed over the course of two decades, the format remains the same: participants are sorted into four teams, each bearing the name of a former Blair headmaster—Breed, Howard, Kelley and Sharpe—and engage in a delightful variety of both silly and serious contests. The week always concludes with a spirited talent show during which one team is crowned the victor.

Updated daily, these snapshots from Director of School Photography Tyson Trish and Video and Marketing Specialist CJ Palanca offer glimpses into the camaraderie, competition and joy that define this beloved Blair tradition.
