Moving Toward a New Vision of Advanced Curriculum
We believe that the best educational experiences for our students are designed by the Blair faculty who work with them every day. We want students to demonstrate their ability to handle advanced coursework in a greater variety of disciplines. Furthermore, Blair students benefit most when they have more tangible evidence of their learning to understand how what they’ve learned will transfer to their future pursuits. That’s why Blair is redesigning its advanced curriculum offerings to more closely align with the School’s vision for its graduates.
This redesign of our program will allow us to build a more comprehensive, engaging and distinguished program in place of AP courses in the years ahead.
