Visiting Campus

The best way to truly experience the community and culture of Phillips Academy is to visit the historic campus. Whether coming from the north and gazing across the Great Lawn or driving up from the south and seeing the Memorial Bell Tower from a mile away, the first sights of Andover are unforgettable. Located just twenty miles north of downtown Boston, Phillips Academy is easily accessible from all major highways, railways and airports.
