Blair meant and means the world to me. I never finished my schooling at Bates College, so Blair is about as far as I got, you could say. And, frankly, I am just fine with that. The education, the faculty, my classmates…I really couldn’t be more grateful for having the opportunity to attend Blair.”

Blair Academy built the foundation for who I am today. I learned a lot in the classroom, but just as importantly, learned a lot outside of the classroom. I use the life skills that Blair taught me every day, both professionally and personally and I am incredibly grateful for my four years at Blair."

I had a truly wonderful experience at Blair—I grew so much as a student and as an individual. Blair allowed me to explore many of my curiosities, interests and passions while instilling in me the work ethic and standards necessary to be successful in college and my career. I left Blair with a deeper understanding of my morals, the importance of community involvement, and the value of engagement."

Blair is the beginning of my real roots, where, during my formative years, I learned so much about who I was and how to prepare for life in the future. The quality education, students, faculty, sports and campus experiences are ingrained in my memories forever. It is with great gratitude that reflect on my opportunity to attend such a wonderful school on such a beautiful campus. Over the years at reunions and in corresponding as a class representative, I have had the pleasure of keeping up with my classmates as we have all lived through the college years, military experiences and building families of our own. I am a truly lucky person to have Blair in my life."
