Blair Trustees, faculty and staff came together this weekend to break ground on the School’s Center for Health and Well-Being. The new facility, set to open in January 2026, will serve as a community hub where students can access health resources, learn, study and socialize. With a crowd of almost 50 looking on, Chair of Blair’s Buildings and Grounds Committee Rob Sigety ’75, P’16 ’18 ’20 ’21 did the honors, hoisting the first shovel-full of dirt as the School celebrated the official launch of the 14-to-16-month construction project adjacent to Hardwick Hall.
Board of Trustees Chair Maria Vinci Savettiere, Esq., P’17 thanked the Board for its support of the Center, which will allow Blair’s health services, counseling and athletic training teams to occupy the same space for the first time in School history.
“The combination of the quality and rigor of Blair’s academics, its student-centered environment, and the teaching and nurturing of health and well-being tools, will ensure that every Blair student reaches their full academic and life potential,” she said. “As we bring this new Center to life, we deliver on this mission as we invest in developing kind, good people, who leave Blair understanding the value of balance and well-being and how they impact academic and professional success.”
Supporting and advancing the well-being of individual students and the Blair community as a whole is critical to the School’s mission, added Head of School Peter G. Curran P’27 ’27. “Conceptualizing this state-of-the-art facility that will further enhance the student experience visibly shows current and prospective families how much of a priority health and well-being are at Blair,” he said.
To date, the School has raised more than $19 million in gifts and pledges in support of the project, for which construction will begin in earnest in early June 2024.
