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.

"I REALLY LIKE THAT I CAN BE MYSELF HERE, AND THAT THERE'S A LOT OF ENCOURAGEMENT TO TRY NEW THINGS. I WAS INTRODUCED TO MOUNTAIN BIKING AT BLUE RIDGE, AND NOW I LOVE IT."
