Mission & Values


Blake engages students with a dynamic, academically challenging education in a diverse and supportive community committed to pluralism and a common set of values. Students pursue an integrated program of academic, artistic and athletic activities, preparing for college, lifelong learning and purposeful lives as community and global citizens.

Commitment to Pluralism

A vibrant learning environment springs from a diverse school community. For this reason, Blake seeks and values students, families and employees with a wide range of backgrounds, identities and life experiences. Individually and collectively, we strive for understanding across differences in an inclusive environment where everyone can belong, contribute and thrive.

Core Values


We respect, support and care for each other, ourselves and our environment. We demonstrate respect by welcoming difference, developing empathy and seeking inclusiveness.

Love of Learning

Curiosity, creativity and critical thinking inspire our passion for learning. We listen, understand, question and grow––as individuals, community members and global citizens.


We expect all community members to speak and act honestly, ethically and fairly.


We value both intellectual and personal courage, ensuring that all are encouraged to question and be questioned. We honor courage in both word and action by fostering intellectual independence, introspection and resilience.
