Academics

Blue Ridge School provides capable and willing young men an environment in which they are able to develop and enjoy academic success and personal growth. Our carefully structured college preparatory curriculum gives each student the personal attention and challenge needed for growth and learning.

We take special pride in helping those students who may not have realized their potential in other academic settings and instilling in them a love of learning that lasts a lifetime.

An education at Blue Ridge School is holistic with intellectual, social, spiritual and emotional dimensions. We believe in training the mind to think critically and creatively. Our caring and professional faculty and staff not only believe in developing skills needed to succeed in an increasingly interdependent, technology-based world but also in developing the virtues needed to be good people, responsible citizens and assets to society.

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!
