Support for Students

Priority
Ensure access to the most outstanding youth from every quarter and provide summer experiences.

Need-Blind Admission

In the past six years, both the percentage of students on financial aid and the amount of the average grant increased incrementally as we moved toward, and in 2008 achieved, need-blind admission. A cornerstone goal of the 2004 Strategic Plan, need-blind admission reflects Andover’s commitment to access for the most talented youth from every quarter. Today, 46 percent of our students receive financial aid, with an average grant of $32,100. (Boarding tuition in 2011–2012 is $42,350, and day tuition is $32,850.)

“You can truly do anything here. What’s more, you can believe in yourself at Andover because, simply put, everyone believes in you and in helping you fulfill your dreams.”

--Vidush Mahansaria ’12

Spring and Summer Experiences

Andover values the learning that takes place outside the classroom. It serves a vital role in enriching the students’ overall educational experience. To that end, we seek funds to help students participate in enrichment programs on campus, throughout the United States, and abroad.
