All In The Campaign for Blair Academy 2018-2025
Peddie Week Fills Blair Campus with Spirit
Ashley Taube

Peddie Week is upon us! As a lead-up to our 120th Peddie Day on Saturday, November 4, Blair’s campus is alive with school spirit and hijinx in preparation for the face-off against our greatest rivals. School day attire will look a bit different from the typical dress code throughout the week, and seniors will be caught up in a clever ruse of harmless pranks to delight and excite the hilltop, culminating in the traditional pep rally and bonfire on Peddie Eve. 

“This week is a favorite of so many in our community as we celebrate the culmination of fall athletics, friendship, competition and rites of passage that date back to 1903,” said Head of School Peter G. Curran P’27 ’27. “The relationship Blair and Peddie have enjoyed since then has been a quintessential part of the boarding school experience and continues to be a highlight of the fall season for all of us.”

Check below for the schedule of events and our athletics department hype video created by video specialist CJ Palanca to motivate Blair to BEAT PEDDIE!
