Onwared Faring A History of Bullis School

Text by Susan King
Foreword by Gerald L. Boarman, Ed.D.

In 1930, Captain (ANG) William Bullis and his bride, schoolteacher Lois Hoover Bullis, founded a small preparatory school in Washington D.C. for post-graduate young men wishing to enter service academies. Captain and Mrs. Bullis could not have imagined then how far their dreams would take them—or how much their school would grow. Nearly ninety years and thousands of graduates later, Bullis School has become one of the finest independent coeducational institutions in the Washington D.C. area.

Onward Faring details the story of Bullis from its beginnings in a D.C. embassy building to today’s magnificent 102-acre Potomac campus—revealing the evolution of the School’s educational strength and its growing community of dedicated staff and outstanding students, alumni, parents and friends. Bullis School’s story is one of tradition, change, challenge and innovation—and is well worth the telling.

This long-awaited hardcover book brings the School’s history to vivid life through narrative, anecdotes and photos—a beautiful volume that every member of the Bullis community can savor, share and treasure.
