Social Activities & Clubs

Plenty of things for boys to do

Homework is done, football practice is over—so now what? At Blue Ridge School, there’s always a fun answer to that question. Like fly fishing. Ultimate Frisbee. Video gaming. Poetry slams. Cooking. Whatever the boys’ interests, they can build a club around it and chances are good a Blue Ridge faculty member will join in, too. From music and broadcasting to robotics, mountain biking, volunteerism, and art, there are kindred spirits on campus eager to create a community around it.

While the clubs are informal, we also plan formal weekend activities that take boys away from campus where they can mingle with other boys and, perhaps more importantly, girls! Here are some of the places Blue Ridge School boys are likely to be seen socializing in supervised environments on the weekends:

  • Short Pump and Tyson’s Corner mall trips
  • Trips to Charlottesville’s Downtown Mall
  • D.C. trips for cultural and historic enrichment
  • Mixers with girls’ schools, such as Madeira and Foxcroft
  • Weekly trips to the movies
  • Skiing at Massanutten and Wintergreen
  • Hiking in the Shenandoah National Park
  • Fishing, canoeing, and camping trips
  • University of Virginia athletics and events

Some examples of Blue Ridge School clubs and organizations: 

  • Chess Club
  • Poker Club
  • Black Student Union
  • Fellowship of Christian Athletes
  • Gay-Straight Alliance
  • Spanish Heritage Club
