Refer a New Student, Get a Credit!

There are still a couple of spots available in each of the classes for the Fall, and we'd love to have them full of wonderful young people! Please spread the word about BMS, and you could get a bonus! For a limited time, currently enrolled Blue Mountain School families will receive a $250 tuition credit (up to $500) when they refer a family who enrolls at least one new child as a BMS student.

[This program does not apply to students enrolling in the Friday Enrichment program. New students are children who have not attended BMS since 2009.]

Hear ye, hear ye!

The second session of summer camp is off to a great start, and the school has been spun back into medieval times! Thank goodness the BMS Court Herald manged to sneak a camera back in time with her!

The youngest of our brave knights spent the morning shining their shields before rushing off to protect the castle from intruders...

While under the shade of nearby trees, the Ladies of the Forest practiced their sword skills...

And deep inside the castle walls, craftsmen were hard at work weaving new tapestries for the throne room.

Tune in for more updates from the past later this week!

Come one! Come all!

Step right up and prepare to be amazed by the Blue Mountain School Circus Extravaganza! Everyone has been working hard all week to learn new skills, create mind-boggling routines, and weave it all together into one fabulous, tremendous, stupendous show! Please join us on Friday at 2:15 for the show of a lifetime! 

And don't forget, next week is Medieval Camp! Register your young Lords and Ladies for a week of swordplay, dancing, cooking, crafts, and more!
