Campus Life

You may be asking yourself, "What is boarding school like?"  At Blue Ridge School, we strive to make our campus a “home away from home.” Our faculty and staff work, live and play on campus. Our students know their math teacher’s children, their coach’s pets and their advisor’s phone number. Our faculty and staff know each student by his name and interests, and are available to students when needed. Blue Ridge School is a community, and at its heart are our students.

Blue Ridge School believes strongly in the philosophy of “work hard, play hard.” We offer a number of clubs, activities and trips to ensure our students are rewarded for the work they achieve.

"THE BIGGEST CHANGE WE SAW IN CHRISTOPHER WAS HIS INDEPENDENCE AND HIS CONFIDENCE IN HIMSELF. BLUE RIDGE IS ABOUT MUCH MORE THAN GETTING READY FOR COLLEGE. IT IS GETTING READY FOR LIFE."
