Traditions

Many of our students' strongest memories are also the school's oldest traditions.

Some of our traditions are as many as 150 years old (the Declamation Contest); others are decades strong (Battle of the Heads) and still others are practically brand new (Blue & Gold Games). Some of our traditions are serious and reverent (Vespers); others are nothing more than good, old-fashioned silliness (screaming your head off during Blair Week pep rally.)

And speaking of silly, just what does "Ala Viva" mean?
