Blair will welcome prospective seventh- and eighth-graders and their families to campus on Saturday, May 4, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. for its annual Spring Preview, an admission office event designed to give those considering boarding school a firsthand look at the value of a Blair education.
“Our goal is to introduce families to our dynamic curricular and cocurricular activities that challenge our students daily, as well as our vibrant and warm community that supports them through this transformative time in their lives,” said Dean of Enrollment Teddy Wenner ’96. “There is no better way to get to know Blair than by visiting in person and meeting our students and teachers. This program does that and more through panel discussions, tours of campus and an overview of the admission process.” 

Following registration in the Chiang-Elghanayan Center for Innovation and Collaboration, visitors will be led on a walking tour of the hilltop to see our historic campus, state-of-the-art facilities and picturesque grounds. Head of School Peter G. Curran P’27 ’27 will welcome prospective families and share the foundation of the Blair experience: knowing our students well, building meaningful relationships and fostering a deep sense of community. Over the course of the day, students, faculty and parents will talk about their experiences with and impressions of Blair, engaging with attendees in enlightening question-and-answer sessions that will further their understanding of the School. Mr. Wenner will conclude the program by walking participants through the Blair admission process, focusing on timeline, requirements, and deadlines for applications and decisions.

“Blair is a special place. We are a mid-size boarding school that combines the program offerings of a larger school with the community and culture of a smaller school,” Mr. Wenner said. “Above all else, we are looking for kind, high-character applicants—students who want to engage within our community, are intellectually curious and  motivated to take advantage of the numerous opportunities on our hilltop.”
