Campus & Community
You have come to the right place if you are seeking a school with great academics, athletics, and arts programs, as well as a strong and diverse community. Just walking from class to class is an uplifting experience because people here are warm and welcoming. I am so happy that I chose Blair because I could not imagine myself anywhere else. I am challenged but happy here...it is truly a place where students grow and thrive.

Blair Academy’s 463-acre hilltop campus is located in Blairstown, New Jersey, approximately nine miles from the Delaware River in pastoral Warren County.
Our facilities include many beautiful, longstanding buildings dating from our 1848 founding, as well as modern, state-of-the-art structures, such as Armstrong-Hipkins Center for the Arts. Our campus also features excellent athletic venues, including a nine-hole golf course, an all-weather track and a 10-court tennis center.
The Blair community is greatly enriched by its ongoing, cordial relationship with the surrounding community, and we are pleased to partner with local schools and organizations on many occasions throughout the year, including annual town-wide Memorial Day and Independence Day celebrations and Blair’s Day of Service.
Visitors and community members are welcome to attend Blair events that are open to the public, and we offer the following information (as well as our campus map) to help ensure the safety and enjoyment of all who frequent our campus and to help you plan your visit.
