The BlueCard is Phillips Academy’s ID card and is issued to all students, faculty and staff. The card is used for identification, for building access, as a library card and as a stored value card to make purchases both on and off campus. The BlueCard is the only accepted form of payment at most on-campus locations, including the Art Store and Athletic Stockroom and for payment of music supplies and school sponsored off-campus trips.
