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.
In my years at Blue Ridge, I watched Mr. Cory Woods change boys by showing them that they could in fact jump farther or climb higher. It was incredible to see boys who had never been exposed to the outdoors jumping off rock ledges into swimming holes or taking a tough mountain bike trail and then excitedly telling their friends what they had accomplished.
Both he and Mrs. Carrie Woods are a huge part of the reason I am a freshman at UC, Boulder!
