Joanne Miceli

Families who are considering boarding school for their students’ high school years won’t want to miss Blair Academy’s Fall Admission Open House on Monday, October 14. This annual event gives prospective students and parents a 360-degree view of the School’s welcoming and inclusive community, as well as its outstanding academic and extracurricular programs, all while enjoying a day on Blair’s historic campus.

Blair’s Fall Open House begins at 8 a.m. with registration and continental breakfast in the Chiang Center for Innovation and Collaboration, where admission counselors and many faculty members will be on hand to welcome attendees. Head of School Chris Fortunato opens the day’s program, which then continues with panel discussions, School Meeting, campus tours, an overview of the admission process and more. A highlight of the event is sure to be the academic, athletic and activities fair, where prospective families have the opportunity to speak one-on-one with athletic coaches, activity advisors, Blair students and faculty from every department.

“I am looking forward to meeting many prospective students and families from near and far at our Fall Open House,” said Associate Head of School & Dean of Admission Peter G. Curran. “It is the perfect opportunity to get a firsthand look at life in our wonderful community and for students to really begin to picture themselves at Blair.”

Pre-registration for the Fall Admission Open House is required. View a full schedule of the day’s events and complete your online pre-registration here. We look forward to welcoming you on October 14!
