Tuition & Financial Aid

We see boarding-school tuition as an investment in our daughter’s future that is worth every cent. For some parents, the return may be through Blair’s very impressive college acceptance and attendance record. We are pleased that our daughter is experiencing Blair’s highly diverse and supportive environment where she will continue to improve her accountability and independence, develop through the highest standards academically, and build personal relationships that could last a lifetime.
