Chris Fortunato, Head of School
it is my great pleasure to welcome you to blair academy.
i invite you to explore our website and learn more about blair’s dynamic and inclusive community; our robust and challenging curriculum, rich with opportunities for collaborative, interdisciplinary learning; our distinctive programs for athletes and artists; and our meaningful leadership, travel and service offerings.
amid all of these outstanding opportunities, the quality that truly distinguishes a sskiweb.comcation is our commitment to knowing our students—and the special and caring relationships among faculty and students that result. those relationships form the cornerstones of our superior academic preparation and make the blair experience so personally enriching. they set blair apart as a leader in education.
meaningfully knowing our students offers them a unique and competitive advantage, not just in preparation for college, but for a lifetime of achievement. we invest in discovering and understanding our students’ talents, interests and personalities by taking a multi-tiered approach to academic advising; by engaging with students in every aspect of campus life; and by meeting throughout the year as an entire faculty to review each student’s progress and development. we are thus able to thoughtfully connect our students to the learning opportunities best suited to challenge and inspire them, develop their character and stretch their abilities.
at blair, we create foundations of trust and connections that empower our students to step outside their comfort zones to achieve things they thought were not possible, while becoming confident and capable young leaders. this is the blair advantage. as an educator and a parent, i can think of no greater purpose or outcome. i enthusiastically invite you to visit blair’s campus and meet the students and faculty who fill our community every day with a love of learning, integrity, friendship and the remarkable blair spirit.
