Blair Academy Tree

Revisit Day 2019

When choosing a boarding school, your instincts are very important, and I’d advise prospective students to go with their gut. Making the decision to leave home for your education is as stressful as it gets, but I am thrilled I took the leap. This school is perfect for me, and I never expected to love this experience as much as I do or create such deep bonds with my peers and teachers.

Blair Academy Revisit Days (Tuesday, April 2, and Friday, April 5, 2019) provide the opportunity for accepted students to learn more about student life and School culture.

Each student will be assigned a host and have the opportunity to experience classes, meet other admitted students, ask questions and get a true feel for Blair life.

While students are visiting classes with their hosts, parents will have the opportunity to attend faculty panels where they can learn about and ask questions relating to academics, athletics and the arts, as well as residential life. In addition, a special-interest fair will give families the opportunity to meet with program leaders, coaches and faculty representatives.

We are excited to see you on campus this spring, and, in the meantime, you can get a glimpse of life at Blair by watching this video.
